Wasn’t much to see but a nice little walk.

Saw a lot of animals, mostly bunnies. Great easy relaxing hike. I recommend this if you enjoy wildlife

A decent walk in the park type trail. I think even beginners will be bored by it. Watch out for the snake holes all throughout the trail.

Super easy hike. Easy to find, right off the freeway & close to home. It had a little steep hill but that was all... loved the fact that it was kid & dog friendly. Dirt trail but you could take stroller if needed (fyi)

It is good beginners trail and has restrooms.

This place sucks. It’s confusing as hell. I ended up parking in a neighborhood and just run the street. Don’t recommend

I was in town on business and went here to get a quick run in on a late afternoon. Thankfully some locals directed to a much better out and back trail that starts from this same trailhead. I don’t know what it’s called but most everyone coming to this parking area headed that way. That trail goes back into the ravine and is hilly, but much more scenic. After my run I cooled down by walking this trail. Pretty flat and boring.

Amazing trail with visibility to various wildlife - we saw birds that are similar in size to storks and pelicans (not 100% sure what they were though). This place is in our back yard and you run into bird watchers every now and then. Amazing experience overall!

Fun little loop!

It’s closed. And it’s a loop but with no signs.

Nice afternoon hike with the family. Definitely would come back.

It’s a decent workout if you’re in the area.

It has incredible view of this place. It’s a easy walking. Good for morning refreshing your mind.

Many walks done here. This one is probably one of my favorite little walks to do. I never considered it much of a hiking trail, but still a beautiful place to take pets or just get a nice view while walking.

Walked here with a good friend a while back. Good a nice warmup.

It’s not 1.8 mike hiking. I did 6 miles. You might need to upgrade to access the map in case you get lost. Hiking in the morning feels awesome!

Great trail; hiked the whole 10 miles in and out. However, I'm not sure why it's ranked easy. All of the different trails that make up this trail are marked moderate. The incline change is 1410, which is greater than most of the other moderate, connecting trails. I would classify this trail as moderate.

Fun hike. Great climb.

This trail is great, very clear path, easy enough with one section that is steeper than the rest (up or down, depending on which direction you walk). We went right at the trailhead, so the steep portion was almost the last thing we did. It was uphill but no problem for my 4-year-old. Only negative was that this isn’t an amazing view, it’s just a loop back in the hills.

I wouldn’t consider this for a hike. If you want a nice walk it would be good as long as you’re okay with walking on a bike path between neighborhoods.

Free parking.
But the pavement part of the trail is closed. Many hikers jump the gates. Safe.

Perfect to take your dog(s) on a long walk around the lake.

No overnight parking. Parking is free.

Pretty steep trail! Hard to know what was the path and just fire clearance. Nice view of irvine from the top. Got a good work out.

Nice easy neighborhood hike.

It was okay. Plan accordingly. There is no shade. Will probably do again, but not on a hot day.
