I wouldn't recommend bringing your dog on this trail as there is quite a bit of broken glass. Other than that it's a nice short trail!

Epic bluffs and sensational views. Enjoyed every minute of this beautiful trail and then took a dip in the Blue Hole. Loved it!

Well this 77 year old who thought he was in better shape was surprised by the challenge of the trail. The steep climbs and descents plus the nearness to the edge of the cliffs made this more of a moderate trail. It is amazing that something this nice is in the city. Great views of the river and the bluffs on the opposite bank. Good shakedown hike that will toughen the knees and hips. Will definitely do it again.

This trail is hidden on the back side of Blue Hole park, but there is a sign directing you to it that gives a bit of history as well. I would actually say this is more "moderate" than it is "easy" as there are some narrow parts next to steep cliffs that have no railing. It's definitely up and down, there's a metal staircase at one point that feels sturdy, and a short distance from that, 2 sets of stairs made of wooden logs. It's definitely not a kid friendly trail, nor would I bring strollers or kid carrying backpacks just because I personally wouldn't want to fall down a cliff with my kid riding shotgun.

Overall, this is an awesome trail located right inside the city, and it's got some great views. I'll definitely hike this again!

I love this short, in-town trail. The South San Gabriel is pretty here because of the cliffs below the trail.

Bring swimsuits! Blue Hole is hard to resist when done. The trail has up ups and downs, it will hurt knees but quiet, pleasant, scenic trail might be worth it.

Beautiful trail with scenic, serene views but VERY steep! Be prepared to walk up some rocks and steep stairs and then down them again. I would also be careful with kids because the trail goes high on the rocks but does not have railing.
