While I love poking at the fringes of the Sespe Wilderness, I thought this trail -- about 3/4 of it paved asphalt -- was a bit dull, despite the nice view of Piru Creek and Lake from the lookout. If you're traveling to get here, I would suggest Slide Mountain or Townsend Peak (listed in Alltrails as Canton Canyon) instead.
