Tried this trail for the first time and really liked it. I read other reviews that suggested to go left. That was a good call! The left has little to no shade and a greater incline. You'll appreciate the shade on the last leg of your run/hike. There is a fee to park $3 weekdays /$5 weekend and I saw staff checking car windows to see if they paid it not.

This is a great place for beginner to intermediate hikers. This is a higher traffic trail, but it still gives you a great taste for the wilderness.

Love this hike! Take my pitbull at least once a month. My favorite time to go is right before sunset. Great views of the valley and IE, on a clear day you can even see the LA skyline! Have seen many deer

Great trail! View from top is magnificent, take lots of water and maybe a power bar if you’re hiking the entire trail.. 11 miles total..

My hike was in mid-July so I got on the trail by 7:00am to beat the heat.
This is a wide well maintained trail good for all types of hiking. Two pay-parking lots (upper and lower) are available just south of the trail head and can accommodate over 300 vehicles for a flat fee of $3.00 for 4 hours. I recommend beginning the trail on your left as you enter the gate from the upper parking lot. The trail will head towards the west for about one mile and then turn north for a mile. At the two-mile point you will have reached the pinnacle of the trail and the best is ahead! As you descend the remaking 2.7 miles, there will be an abundance of shade to enjoy as you finish up.

Parked at Oak Mesa Elementary School off Wheeler Ave. Access to the trail through the park over the wash bride takes you to Los Robles right, to Via De Mansion right, to Orangewood St left, trail head half ways down the block on your left. Find the trail head on Google Maps “Marshall Canyon Biking Trail”

Trail has good shade throughout first 4 miles in then it opened up. Not to technical, some loose trails closer to the the top loop. Carful on Roller Coaster Trail coming down.

Fully exposed with little shade. Trail is well marked, clean and busy.

Nice workout. Went to the left, pretty good workout. Lots of other people but generally polite. Parking fee but totally worth it.

I have done this one several times and really enjoy it. It's more a family trail in my opinion than anything. Nothing too too strenuous but there are some parts of it that will get your blood flow going. A few friends and I decided we would run this about a month ago and while the young buck did the entire thing no sweat, the rest of us had to walk certain points. It's a great way to stay in shape though with just enough uphill and down. The views are great the entire time and the gazebo at the top makes for a good little resting spot.
I recommend taking the first left. Its a little more uphill at first but the last mile or two is easier and you'll get shade later on in the hike. Bring plenty of water!
Weekends are filled up so I recommend getting there early and there is a small fee for parking as well.
If you're bringing the pups, they are welcomed but make sure they are on a leash or the rangers will issue a ticket.

Hope you enjoy!

Nice hike. A lot of the trail is open (not shady) so it can get a bit hot. The steps going up from the Thompson Creek Trail are steep and hot too! Trail was pretty. A bit dry and dead already, which is a bummer considering it’s only June. I never saw a “pasture.” Kept looking for it. So if there is a pasture, it’s small and there are no signs.

Go down Burbank Trail. It's more of a workout due to it being very steep.

Enjoyable day hike w/great scenery

The left side is harder to go up, but its rewarding at the end... you get shade on the way down.

Good climbing route...down hill wasn’t too technical but a little slippery.

Great little trek!

Great trail with a ton of hikers. Always feel safe here.

This was a pretty decent trail. My average mile was 18 minutes, which was hard to keep that pace with the hills. I am definitely going back :)

Great trail, will be back.

Great trail to get some cardio in. Be on the lookout, I had a bear pop out on to the trail today when I got to the top.

I love this trail it’s a good workout it’s not hard, but it’s a good hike especially early in the morning! I love it!

Awesome trail. Well kept. Rest spots and restrooms are along the trail.

My bf and I love this trail! We tend to go on evenings after 4pm since we’ve had some lovely weather. Hasn’t been too hot. Anyways, just the other Friday after the trail opened back up, we saw a BEAR. Yep, just up 1.5 miles, not even that high up. I seen it from a distance, as it made its way down the mountain. That very instant I acted and we returned back down as fast as we could. But just a friendly reminder hike friends to STAY ALERT and AWARE of your surroundings at all times! HAPPY Hiking.

Loved this trail! Had some trouble finding it...Yes, you should go over the bridge and walk through the neighborhood...but once found it was great! This will be a repeated trail absolutely. I hadn't been hiking in awhile and this trail was easy enough that it didn't kill me. Great trees, some old stables and lovely scenery

love this trail been coming here for years

2 parking lots, upper and lower. we arrived upper lot at about 730am but it's almost full. $5 a parking permit, only valid for 4hr!!! we didn't realize time was so tight for a 9miles roundtrip!! steep uphill but easy plain trail , just 1mile with small rocks and luckily it was foggy and humid in the morning. good place for bicycling too

Very easy and shady !!! Trees cover the trail the whole way so it’s not to hot . Nice stream of water at some points of the trail .

A good conditioning hike.

Well maintained trail. Nice switchbacks. Gorgeous views. Great workout.

This trail is my favorite trail. There are lots of trees and shade.
Several birds and squirrels can be seen by the trail. There is a nice Creek that runs by the trail and you can hear it as you hike.
There are a ton of rocks on this trail. you definitely need cushion shoes.
This trail is also popular. It takes about an 1.5 to do if you're a fast hiker (not quite running speeds).

I will continue to go on this hike
