Pretty steep trail! Hard to know what was the path and just fire clearance. Nice view of irvine from the top. Got a good work out.

This trail has NO markers. I did 2.3 miles, as I couldn't figure out the 4.2 advertised course. A lot of shrubbery has been hacked down, and couldn't figure out where was the"trail" path? I used All trails to figure out where I was , but it showed me I was not on main trail (RED).

After, I drove around Turtle Rock, and I didn't get any additional info, that could have made my hike any better.

I could see areas that have vegetation hacked, and no trail paths.

I won't be back.
