It's okay. Much better than accessing near Top of the World which is waaaay to busy for my liking. But this trail map leads you to a gated community so we actually had to go about 2 miles down the road to a park and access the trail head from there. It was a pretty easy trail. There is some good elevation on the last leg of the loop along West Ridge Trail. Tip: for directions use Canyon Vistas Park in Aliso Viejo; not a lot of shade so start early or make sure you pack sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of sunscreen. Watch out for mountain bikers cuz they ain't watching for you!

Well maintained trail. Nice views if you add on top of the world to the middle of it. The actual hill on Mathis is pretty challenging.

The spot marked as the trailhead is inside of a gated community and I could not find anyway to access it. I ended up starting at Canyon View Park and still did the majority of this marked loop.

Very well maintained and organized trail. Very popular and is an easier alternative to Car Wreck Trail. Have your water and sun block ready if you are planning on doing the full trail during peak sunlight hours.

Some nice views and very clearly marked trail, but most of it was fairly boring and we were always afraid of colliding with a mountain biker. There are lots of ways to do this loop and we chose a few trails that took us about 6miles r/t.
