I love this hike. This hike is always great in winter when the sky’s are clear and the mountains in the distance have snow peaks.

Marys Trail, Little Sycamore Canyon Trail, Serrano Ridge Trail, Camarillo Canyon Trail, connect with Nix Stagecoach South back to parking lot at Mix Nature Center in 2.5 hours. It's easier to start at St Mary's.

Started on Barbara’s lake loop to lil Sycamore. Good trail. Lots of ups and down elevation changes. Some rocky parts. Beautiful views. Shared with bikes so listen for bike bells or people trying to pass.

This was a fun 2 hour ( ish) hike with several trail types. Some narrow paths,wide paths, sand, gravel, stones, some rock . Kept it interesting! Great signage. NO SHADE. Bring water and wear sunscreen . Gradual incline if you go left to start, but up almost the whole way. Popular with bikers so pay attention . Saw a bunch of Hawks and turkey vultures today too!

Really pretty and enjoyable trail. No shade. It was not crowded at all, even though I went on a Sunday afternoon.

Really nice moderate hike. It had some uphill sections that got my heart rate going just enough. Great for new-ish hikers! Parking costs $3 and is a small lot. There’s a station with restrooms.

Closed off due to the virus, you cannot park inside and I couldn't find a place that was close enough to park and be able to walk to the entrance. If you are someone who lives in the area you can probably get access to this trail and enjoy it.

Excellent trail. I would advise going clock wise and descending down Lower Sycamore trail rather than ascending. The views on this trail are amazing and plenty of wildlife to see. Lots of Turkey Vultures flying close by over head. The real reward is the views once at the top. They don’t disappoint!

It was a great hike right frm beginning to the end. Parking gates open only at 8 am & genuinely wish we could start the hike earlier as it gets warm as the day progresses. It was completely natural wilderness. There are enough markers & emergency no to call all thru the trail. There was quite a bit of hiking up the trail. Had few bikers sharing the trail. Beautiful views once you are up the hike. Carry enough water to quench yourself.

Well marked and (mostly) graded trails. The first mile is steep with some loose rock. Next mile and a half is a wide graded road - shared with bicycle traffic. All cyclists we encountered (about a dozen on a Saturday morning) were polite and courteous, most had a bell or other noise maker so we heard them coming from behind. Steep downhill for about 1/2 mile with poorly graded switch backs. A lightly shaded flat patch for about 1/2 mile comes next - close to the highway, so some road noise. Also, gnats in this damp stretch. Next is another uphill, some a bit steep and exposed to sun. The steep parts of this entire trail are least maintained with loose rock and screed. Finish stretch is downhill to the nature center parking lot. Super friendly and helpful staff rangers at the nature center. Free maps of trails for this and surrounding areas. Four stars for me because of the road noise in a couple stretches and proximity to the city. Never really felt like I was away. Even with that, we’ll return to hike some of the other longer trails. Parking lot was full by 9:00am on a Saturday (I picked up the last space) so start early on weekends (sign says lot opens at 8:00).
