This trail has a bit of an incline for the first 15 minutes but seems to get easier after that. The ahwingna side doesn’t have as much shade as the Coyote trial side. Love this little loop hike, I have yet to bring my dog here but plan too when I go back!

I love how well maintained the hiking trail is. Beautiful flowers line the path. Birds, bunnies, and squirrels run by the trails so it feels like an escape from the city life.

A good trail for a workout; leads to numerous other trails so its easy to add more mileage & elevation. Most of the trail is exposed so plan accordingly.

great hike if you like we nearby

Puma portion of the trail overgrown to the point of walking thru brush higher than your head. The other trails that it connects to are really nice.

this trail sucked! too freaking muddy! it was mission impossible to take the mud off my shoes ... oh! and the snails I couldn’t help stepping on!!!

This this hike yesterday late afternoon and the previous day's rain was all dried up. No muddy spots. Regrettably my boyfriend and I didn't research this well, so here's a few tips for you. -We ended up doing a loop similar to Ben Gilsdorf down below (Recording - Apr 07, 10:40 AM). Our total was 5.8mi and a little over 3hrs -There are several entrances to this loop, and we choose the one on Frame Ave (parked on Holmes Cir). Next time I would try a different entrance, because brush was really overgrown (6' high) and it was unpleasant to constantly get stabbed in the ankles/calves by spiky weeds. (Perhaps Hadley/Elmquist? That'll also shave off a mile at least. The loop itself was wide most of the time and clear. -I'd recommend going through Skyline Trail (so going straight) instead of turning left to Worsham Canyon. Why? Because we did the opposite and got some downhill/uphill shade and then over 1mi of full sun uphill pain. So much uphill. So much cursing. We started at 3:30pm, so I think morning folks can expect full sun the entire time. Would definitely do again. The drone of the power-lines was amusing. The views at the top were worth it. Beautiful sunset over Los Angeles.

Trail a little overgrown but still the same old trail, Changes the skyline views completely. Great ride up, Great ride down.

good for trail running

nice trail for running

So beautiful with the superbloom happening! In some areas the flowers were over our heads.

We decided to start up the Coyote trail with a significant elevation gain or at least it felt like it. Plenty of coverage from the sun for rest stops. It's definitely easy to moderate. You'll have to find parking in the neighborhood.

Great trail. I just wish I was wearing bug spray, there were a lot of flies. Lots of overgrown plants and a fallen tree. Beautiful scenery and good views. No need to go to the desert to see flowers, there plenty of them here. There are parts of the trail where you need to walk through the flowers, I posted pictures of them and where they are on the map incase anyone wants to avoid them. Also some of the plants on the side of the trail are thorny so watch our hands, they got us a couple of times.

yes, trail starts out at a SoCal Edison right of way underneath high voltage transmission towers. it's marked private property/no trespassing, but I jumped the fence and didn't see anyone to argue with. it was a great trail with awesome views and wildflowers. there is almost no cover so bring water and/or start early.

Significant inclines. Lots of wildflowers in spring. Not crowded.

The hills are green and the flowers are poppin'! The beginning is a steady incline but worth it as you drop down into a beautiful canyon.

This trail is a steady incline out and back, but if you'd like to experience a peaceful canyon, take the Native Oak Loop to the west.
