Great hike, no shade, wear a hat, bring water, start early, beautiful scenery, moderate hike. It can be challenging up some hills but not bad, I carry my year old in a hiking backpack. completely doable! Have fun!!!

Decent trail with nice ups and downs. Some great views. I would recommend in spring when flowers bloom. A little boring at times at it just goes up and down rilling hills with no water. Nice views from the top.

This was a great hike! I would definitely recommend going toward the end of January where it’s not too cold. The weather was perfect for the hike since it was about 71 degrees and cloudy. This makes up for it not having shady spots. The hike itself felt easy to moderate but I would probably find it difficult in the summer. Parking was easy to find on a Sunday afternoon.

Great hike. The only thing I would say it needs is pointers or signs in the trail.

A nice variety of wildflowers have already grown back. A large adult rattlesnake was in the brush just west of the west side of the loop, about 200 feet north from the segment that leads back to Hidden Canyon Road. It didn’t rattle when I approached until a jet passing overhead adding more ground vibrations. This field area is between the trail and Hidden Canyon Road where many people park. Other hikers have recently seen rattlesnakes in this field too including at the parking area, so be careful even on the street.

Lots of wildflowers now and likely through summer. Western Rattlesnake in the brush along the west path near the trailhead.

Hiked the trail 5/22 and it was nice, but we did encounter some creatures. Saw many lizards, bugs, blue jay, roadrunner (all no biggie), but we did see a long and skinny garter snake. We were crossing a small ravine and turned the corner to see it lying on the trail around 11am. Our surprised presence did scare it away. Other then the surprised snake find, the trail offers views of Anaheim Hills and while some parts are still burned from the fire, new life is growing.

Excellent vievs of the hills and close Santa Ana mountains. Because of the rains, at this time (4/30/19) everything is green with yellow shades of the California poppies! Makes you feel you are in a different place. Easy hike, very secluded, so not to many people in the trails. Just mountain bikers and few joggers.

The trail is currently being cleared of the overgrown vegetation from the rains. Although it’s closed many visitors (myself included) passed the sign and headed towards the trail. Be careful around the workers with machinery and let them know your are present. The plants on the trail are beginning to dry so the scenery isn’t as pretty but the good news is the trail is clear and easy to navigate. First time hear and honestly it’s a good trail! Cannot wait to return!

This trail is absolutely beautiful, there’s poppies everywhere and lots of butterflies and greenery! It’s nice if you want a bit of a longer hike and the inclines aren’t too tough. I would say it is good for a beginner but it really just depends on the person. Free parking and dog friendly!

This trail is fantastic, ups and downs and full of beautiful landscape. You’ll need sunscreen and water since it’s all open. Great for a trail run or even for those nice trail walks.

Scenic trail throughout. Green hills as far as the eye can see. Lots of colorful golden poppies sprouting along trail. Trails are well maintained. Got a little muddy in spots from all of the rain, but not difficult to maneuver. At the beginning when the trail breaks into three paths, we took the one on the left hand side. Be careful in the first 1/2 mile, we spotted multiple coyotes in the area. Was hard to spot them through the tall grass. Liked that there weren’t too many people, even on a weekend. Doggos got a little muddy but had a blast!
