I liked the fact that there were trees everywhere and it wasn’t to busy

Good short hike up hill, interesting view of downtown LA, you are gonna need plenty of sunblock and water, no shade at all.

Really great trail. Good inclines which you will definitely feel once the heat starts working on you. Definitely bring some water. Perfect trail to toss on a weight vest and train your endurance.

Saw a few mountain bikes as well. Walked down the trail one of the bikers came up. If that's your thing I do not believe you would be disappointed.

Big negative is the parking. I parked on Beverly pretty far down until I did not see a sign that said "Permit Parking". Then I had to walk up Beverly to the entrance of Turnbull. Depending on your outlook you could just write it off as part of your hike that day.

Overall nothing wrong with the trail itself. Perfect moderate trail to break you into hiking tougher trails in the future. 4 stars only because of seemingly non-existent parking.

Too many people very trashy ☠️

Got a $75 ticket for leaving after hours (6:05pm). Sun wasn’t even down, super strict. It used to be a really chill spot to hike. No bathrooms.

Get beginners route!

Good hike for beginners and kiddos!

I love this trail on my bike man it’s so beautiful and you can get some amazing speed

It’s a great spot for an easy to moderate hike through the California terrain. Accessible via an ornate gate off of westbound Colima road. Takes about an hour or so to complete the entire loop and there are some mild inclines at some points whether you start out on the left hand side path or the right hand path. I went right as a an out-of-shape noob as opposed to left, which apparently is said to be the best workout. While you get a decent amount of incline even when using the right hand path, I can see how going left would yield a longer length of incline. Still, I felt as though my blood was pumping when I finished my trek but not as though I’d pass out from it which was my goal all along. I like this spot for the dedicated FREE parking at the trail head. Although small, i had no problem finding a spot on a 1:00pm Sunday afternoon as it didn’t seem to be highly trafficked. There’s a porta potty and water fountain in the lot as well as lots of signage to either teach you about the area’s fauna or to guide you as you hike about in and out of the valley. There’s a mix of dirt paths and paved paths. Great views of the city and hillside. Just watch out for dog or horse poo and take some water. I’ll be coming back to this spot for sure.

Parking is horrible! Everything is permit only! Such a bummer...

beautiful trail, short and sweet. Good quick workout.

Steep. Steep. Steep. Did I say steep. I hike often but this one goes up in a zig zag a lot. I was almost half way up when I had to turn around and go back. There was very little shade. Be careful with all the dog poop.

Great hike about 4miles, but rules have changed. Parking is limited and so are the hours for hiking. 9am-5pm
Parking permit only on surrounding streets.
No restrooms

parking is no good. nice medium trail

One of my favorite hikes when I’m in LA.

Started out as what I call workout hike with wide paths but then turned into nice nature smaller trail which was very enjoyable, especially after the recent rains.

It's a good beginner hike or just a quick fun cardio session for those with hiking experience! If you want it to be more on the moderate side like it mentions, start by going to the left, it is more uphill with some good hills to get your blood flowing.

My fav trail
My kids love it and it’s so peaceful and beautiful
We take a lot of our family photos here

Nice trail
Not a lot of parking
And the coyote trail was too tough for my kids
But over all the trails seemed clean and the views are wonderful

Not good to hike. It’s a plain straight trail with a lot of dog turd. It’s good for a simple run.

Loved this place, took my 3 year old grandson and he loved it too. He's used to hiking so did great, but can get steep for a typical child.

Very good uphill trail!
Cons:
No parking, street parking next to trail is permit parking only, you need to park on Beverly Blvd where there are no signs for permit parking. Closed on rainy days and the day after rain.

Very smooth trail for me

love it a lot of green lush to savor

They open at 9am

nice little hike I always take the the coyote trail, simple

Fun hike. It never ceases to amaze me how you can find open spaces in the middle of a metropolis like Los Angeles, this one is just of the Pomona Hwy near Avocado Heights and the City of Industry. Not surprisingly, this trail is heavily trafficked on most parts. Also worth noting is that some parts of the trail are shared with Bikes and Horses, though we only saw a couple of bicyclists and horse apples but no horses. The trail head has a small parking lot, with only a couple of spots but there is more parking down by the street by the Orange Grove Middle School sports field. Worth noting is that there are many different hikes you can piece together in Hacienda Hills, we did a version of the hike that was closer to 5 miles.

This hike should be labeled easy and not moderate. However, it's a nice hike for the area and a good place to do trail running. There is a small parking lot available.
