The upper part of this trail as shown on the map is called the Chutes trail, which is a mountain bike course, bumpy, steep, and sandy, definitely not "easy". The first part is a path defined by fencing, nothing too exciting but a nice easy walk.

I have come to Peters Canyon for a while, but only recently for mountain biking. I typically start by Lower Peter's Canyon Reservoir and then go left at the sign. Then around the lake, I would recommend taking Cactus Point Trail. Next, I take the main fire road back until Scout Hill and then continue on East Ridge until Eucalyptus and then the ride is over. It is fairly steep at some spots, but is still relatively easy. I love this trail for hiking, and it is good for biking but there are definitely better places.

Great work out with amazing view.

You have to pay to get into this one. Not a big deal as it's giving back a little and only $5, but it does somewhat take you out of the experience. There was a fair bit of trash lying around and no shade throughout 90% of the hike. First half uphill, second half downhill along an easy dirt path. So many different trails that it can be hard to navigate this one, but they all pretty much intertwine with each other, so you should be fun. A fun way to kill a couple of hours, but not my favorite. Head over to Black Star or Orange Hills for a little more variety (and no parking fee) :).

A bit charred still from the fires, and the water level is low, but still a pretty hike and nice loop, away from the hustle and bustle...but not too far so it’s easy to access!

This is a moderate trail. you can have option to push a lil harder by trying a stiffer road or just follow a flat road.

Not to bad, the fire damage is significant so a lot of the trails are blocked off but all in all a great place to walk around in the afternoon

This was my first hike. I enjoyed it!!

nice easy loop. some sections were closed for fire recovery. I took my dog and had a good back pack in and out. even with closures it was easy to navigate around.

a great beginner hike!

Is there a lake in the area?

Many of the trails closed for wildfire recovery. Awesome trail. My family enjoyed it a lot. We will go many more times when all trails opened

Love it!!

part of the trail on the west side is still closed due to the fires. You can navigate around this area and complete the trail, but it's a bit tricky finding a "through route".

Ran the track in about an hour. If you haven't trained for uphills like me, the beginning will have your calves burning. Second half is mostly flat with a slight incline. Scenery is decent considering it's local.

Really enjoyed the trails here. Parking is only $5, not bad at all. There are several different trails to chose from, although there are a few that are closed due to the fires. Amazing views, super clean restrooms, and friendly park rangers. Will definitely be coming back. There is just a lot of horse poop, but nothing you can't walk past.

Good hike everyone is very friendly out on the path. Lots bikers so be sure to keep way for them. All the various trails can get a little confusing. Overall a good local hike. Parking is 5 dollars.

Nice hike and nice view at the top. Very nice ride on a mountain bike.

Superb demanding trail.

$5 to park. Not bad. Comes with a detailed map!!! Love it! Currently, some of the trails are closed due to the recent fire but they are super clear about which trails are open. Even with some trails being closed there were still a ton of trail options! Also we saw a crawfish so that was cool!

not bad. had lots of fun

Really good trail to go on!
Many trails to pick from as well. They all connect at the ends.
Great view from the top!

I’d say it’s longer than the length advertised, parts of the trail are still closed but we were able to follow most of it. It’s a nice hike!
