Nice quick cheap conditioning hike

This was a fantastic hike with great views. I hike up this trail and come down the Las Llajas trail, which makes a roughly 9.5 mile loop. Great for a good calorie burn. Bring water.

If you follow the red trail that is shown, it is a steep and narrow trail. Took our two little kids and it was rough. I don't feel like the hike outlined is the correct one perhaps? We were definitely mislead. Lots of trail options there, but if you follow the red outlined trail, it's not easy and has you take strange paths. Wouldn't recommend for kids.

Great view

Nice 4 miles with a loop. Pretty views. Lots of wildflowers and birds. But also a lot of BEES, bikers, and lizards. Went late morning on a Sunday and saw only a handful of other hikers. No parking lot, just a dirt pull out, and No port-o-johns.

Super easy loop, even first .7 miles to the top, under 12 mins.
4.4 miles @3.9 mph 1:07
It's a very short loop, had to add a little extra mileage, took to Westlake Blvd and back to the loop, bring it to 4.4 miles. Still short with add. It's beautiful in the spring when its green, not so much now that it's dead and brown. Nice wide trails makes it easy to spot snakes well ahead of time on warmer days. No shade on this trail. There are several trails in this area that link together, make your own route...

Great trail and the incline to the top is a great work out and challenge. Lots of hawks circling overhead. Hills are still green and beautiful. I went up another 1.5 miles on the Rocky Peak trail. Just an awesome hike and workout.

Great trail and the incline is great leg work out.

loved the hike. we took the hard way up but once you get there, its so worth it. specially at night

The weather was great for a hike. We parked our car behind the museum in the parking lot and walked up the fire road passed by The Village. There was no trail sign so we just kept following the fire road. Eventually we got lost and wound up at the top of Long Canyon Trail. We couldn't figure out the loop so we just came back the same way completing 5.7 miles by the end. Conclusion: take a map with you. The GPS didn't work well.

Pretty in the spring, after rains. Wildflowers. Kind of steep in some places on the way up. About a mile up you arrive at an expansive field with offshoot trails. Dog, kid and mountain bike friendly. Plenty of parking at entrance.

Easy trail. At a slow pace about 90 minutes. Lots of birds. Also look for the seashell fossils in the rocks.

Love this hiking trail. There even is a tire swing if you can be adventurous and find it.. ps. it’s near the area where the post shows you “who was here first, the rock or the tree”

Great easy trail with the option of a more challenging shortcut. Absolutely beautiful at sunset or sunrise. Make sure to look for the prayer box near the cross!

Beautiful views! Was insanely windy when I went which made it slightly more adventurous. But very easy hike, not too many inclines.

Beautiful green and lush. Got lost at some point because there are other trails that branch off but no trailhead signs. Worth it though for a quick workout.

As someone else said, I ended up missing the loop and going towards a housing area a couple of miles down. Since It had rained I came upon a gnarly mud pit that almost took me out

Great hike. Dogs are allowed on leash. Many trails that branch off the main trail to add some variety.

Great hike for families with kids. My 3 and 5 year olds made it and had fun.

I would not recommend bringing your dogs on this trail, there is a thorny weed growing in abundance out there, it will stick in their paws, and my dogs eye got scratched which I'm contributing to this thorny weed as well. It is a beautiful place but go without your dog to explore.

Nice afternoon hike. Not many hikers and a couple of bikers. Trail is in decent condition but not as overgrown on the loop as I was expecting. No wildlife seen other than birds.
