Love the intensity of this hike

Great hike for our family with one HUGE exception- TICKS! Great terrain with lots of trees, shade and water crossings. Trail is well warned path. Once you start going up hill the brush is closer to the path. That's when we noticed ticks on our white dog. Lots of ticks on both dogs and both myself and my husband had one on us. NO, we did not go off the trail, we did our best to avoid the the brush. And the dogs had flea & tick monthly meds. Not likely to return- definitely not with the dogs.

Short but hard if you want a nice view you can go past the final incline and continue to the fire road which I prefer. Then you can continue on he fire road but it’s a much sharper incline. I tried since the lower easy trails were closed.

It varies each season which I love.

Love this trail to the Waterfalls; hiked this trail 3 times, the last time I did it solo. Too bad it’s closed for now.

Good up.. got lost down

Easy, quick and beautiful. You can get a quick 30 minute trail hike, I preferably RHike (Run-Hike), and be about your day. The view of Newhall is beautiful.

I loved it. Easy access at right off the freeway, and just 5 miles from home. Yes, you can see and hear the freeway, and yes you can see (and hear!) the power lines later...but we're in LA County off a freeway - what would you expect?! I do agree with those that say it's not clearly marked. We went off course a few times. There are lots of elevation changes - rarely are you walking flat. That made for a nice steady challenge. We ran into a few unexpected relics - foundation of an old stone structure and a few rusty pieces of industrial equipment. Overall, a good way to spend this next to last day of 2017. My finally logged hike was 4.01 miles with a 980 ft elevation gain.

Good trail for a short hike. I went early afternoon and it was warm for a winter day. Seems like it would be really beautiful in the morning

Interesting summit view, but terrible proximity to the noisy stinky highway

A mildly challenging hike (my 2 year old climbed 3/4ths of it without help). However, it is short and the last peak of the hike is overgrown.

The area is very dry. Greeted by radio towers the path quickly goes into the mountains. At the top it leads to a couple of forks in the road. there is also a bathroom, tables, and a circular structure.

Great Workout. Beautiful Views at the top. Trail is partially shaded with lots of beautiful trees and mountains. One of my local favorites.

This is a nice trail to get a good workout with quite a bit of scenery.

Nice small trail loops. Low impact hills with some scenery nestled within the city. Kiddo and dog friendly.

This is a nice historical site with a paved path great for pushing a stroller if you want to bring your little ones along.

Whoever said this is kid friendly is WRONG. maybe if your kids are 10+ but definitely not if they are any younger. Not well maintained and an all around stressful hike because of it. Loose dirt had me and one of the kiddos fall/slide about 4.5 feet down the side of the canyon.

Making it to the towers and back is a rush. Love this hike!

A lil difficult which i like. The views are Beautiful from the top!

Gorgeous views, bubbling tar pits and springs
