i would rate this as a easy to moderate trail on difficulty. i think people rate the difficulty based on distance. Nice trails throughout

Nice long hike with changing scenery. Definitely go counter-clockwise if hiking. Not overly difficult - not entirely sure why this is rated as “Hard”: Perhaps it’s the distance?

Fun basic trail that is great for beginners. There are sections with rock obstacles which are tunneled within trees. Great views too. Recommend bringing more than 24oz of water/sport drink during the heat. Popular trail for the horse riding Agoura neighborhood.

Rattlesnakes are out in full force now. My son had a baby one cross the trail right in front of his bike

Went on hike on Sunday April 29 a group of 10 around noon. There were plenty of parking spots. Park rangers were there to provide information of trails. Considering weekend, not many people were on the trails. All hikers we met along the way were very friendly. We’ll definitely go back.

Beautiful views. Sections of the trail are just breathtakingly amazing!! Not much shade on the first half of the trail. Didn’t see many other hikers.

LONG, only a couple of longer climbs. But a great day trip.

Good old reliable cheseboro

The whole family loved the trail.

Most of the bikers were friendly, but some of the trail was very narrow and the bikers go so fast that it’s not the best place to hike with dogs. But it was a good hike.

Nice meadows. Did this loop in about an hour and 15. My fitbit calculated 3 miles even.

I got lost ended up in oak park

Very crowded on a Saturday. Spent too much time standing to the side for people who are unaware of trail etiquette.

it’s a very good trail.

Ran this trail yesterday and it was absolutely beautiful. I'll be making it a regular!

Love this trail! Extremely low traffic and stunning views. Good challenging incline, but great flats to run as well.

Hiked this loop on a warm day. Mostly encountered Mtn bikers on the trail. The majority seem to ride clockwise so Hike opposite way to see them coming. Take plenty of water. There isn’t a lot of shade on much of the trail. Trail is well worn so not too rocky, but it can be very dusty.

Good open trails with lots of options. Trail is soft in spots and because of all the options it’s easy to get flipped around or lost. The middle peak is nice, but the trail is pretty bland otherwise. There is trails for all skill levels.

Really nice hike if you do a stop at the lake. Mostly shade with a few segments on the full sun. Really amazing views.

Bring insect repellant - ticks and flies (that bite!) are abound at the beginning of the trail and near the lake. Alternatively wear long pants and long sleeve.

I think I also did the loop in reverse - make sure you do it clock-wise from the start point.

Note there are no bathrooms at the head of this trail - plan accordingly.

challenging on a hot day, but totally worth it

Lots of mt. bikes. We entered the loop from Doubletree Lane, so only 7 miles for us.

Saw three deer today (Sept 19,2017) hiking this trail. See my milepost on my recording Cheeseboro Canyon View attached to Cheeseboro Canyon View Trail. Always great to see deer. It wasn't near dawn or dusk but about 11:45. It was a cloudy cooler day. There was a doe with male and female fawns. Doe stayed pretty well hidden but fawns were out in the open. Both the young ones and I had a staring contest but they were unperturbed.

We encountered several bikers, who moved clockwise through the northern half of this loop. Therefore, I recommend hiking this loop counterclockwise, so that you can see them coming.

There was a significant amount of horse manure on the southern half of this loop.

Difficulty level was moderate.

I used my jogging stroller and it worked OK. I would do it again.

Difficult climb on dead cow trail as it is full of channels and holes. But a great down hill ride after the climb.

This was my first hiking experience in the area led by a friend of a friend and was not a good hike for beginners; however it was beautiful and worth it in the end. It was a perfect Easter afternoon and the flat beginning portion of this trail was nice with many wildflowers in bloom. We then went up the Lake Vista Trail to get to Crags Rd trail and over to the Mash picnic area. Going over the mountain was not easy for my 5 year old or the senior in our group. My 10 year old and the other kids on the hike made it over fine, but none of them wanted to go back over the mountain to get back to our cars. The mountain had even better flowers than the flat part, but there were also a number of sharp plants and very steep parts. At the Mash site we split the group and the moms went back over the mountain to get the cars while the dads and grandma walked with the kids out to Crags Rd. It was quite a day! I would do it again, just without the children.

Really peaceful Canyon, mostly wide trail, better to hike in cooler evening. I've hiked in midday and the sun kinda wipes you out as there are limited shade and breezes. Well travelled by bikers and hikers, listen for the bike bells and step to the left!
