First mile or two are strenuous, after that point if you want a more challenging hike I suggest you walk the ridge line trail all the way to the northernmost cell tower cluster. Lots of ups and downs and makes the hike more balanced from beginning to end. I extended it a bit and the last mile of descent are rough on the knees after 15 miles. Wish I had brought my poles just for that section. The views from the ridge line are the best 360 views in LA. Catalina, downtown, burbank, Glendale, Alta Dena, San Gabriels, etc. good hike will do it again many times.
