Great trail! Went on an overcast cool day and it was amazing. At the beginning of the hike it was a bit rocky but as you get further up the mountain it evens out pretty well. Be aware there are a few mountain bikers that do pop up from around the corner. Also as you get further up there are a few different trails to choose from. Since there are options of different trails the pathway isn’t too populated as was an enjoyable morning! Beautiful views and green. It started to sprinkle as we got further into the hike and didn’t find an issue with slipping at all. I would highly recommend wearing good hiking shoes/boots because of the rocks instead of average active shoes.
Definitely a bonus to see everyone out and about with all of their pups

Nice trail. Be prepared for rocks, especially if it’s just rained. If you go earlier there’s shade.

Very pretty, wish there were more trees throughout but there’s more shade here than many other spots in Southern California

Great hike with good views. Unfortunately the trail has more dog poop then any I’ve trail I’ve seen. One of the better trails is the area but the poop takes it down a few notches.
