Perfect hike for family’s, we sometimes drive up and walk for early morning exercise, or ride our bikes as a fun summer activity. Perfect for kids of all ages

Park at Hoover Elementary: Alta and Broadway. All over street parking is permit only.

Good hike, lots of fun! Saw a few deer.

Good starter trial..

Was very pleasant. But if you push it you can get a real burn

I loved it!!! Took my 3 month old German shepherd and tired him out too!!! Definitely one of my favorite trails, make sure to bring water and comfy shoes(I accidentally grabbed my workout shoes-not hiking shoes!!) overall, it was an intense workout, but great for beginners!

A quick little weekday warm up for the trials that are up and coming for me, if you loop it twice it’s a decent work out!

I went this weekend to try two spots in Whittier. This one had absolutely NO parking and all streets around are permit only. I will spend my time and breakfast dollars in a city that wants me there. Second spot was a bust as well!

My first time at Turnbull Canyon was intense!! I super enjoyed the inclineSSSS. There were many of them. I really loved that there were different ways to go, though it’s easy to get lost. My girlfriend and I came down a different route, ended up at a parking lot we didn’t enter through, and walked about 3/4 mike to get back to her car.

If you’re not parking at the little parking lot (near Orange and Greenleaf), you can park by the elementary school near Alta and Broadway and walk to Beverly, which takes you to the trailhead. Not a bad walk.

All in all, I enjoyed the run, sweated a lot, and would recommend to anyone for walking and hiking as well.

No where to park!!! Not cool

Very Nice and for a beginner i loved it. I would highly recommend !

This was a beautiful trail. It was great for a family hike. My five-year-old son blazed through it with no problem. My three-year-old daughter had a little bit of difficulty, but was still able to do it on her own. It is a little bit on the short side, but if you want to make it a little more challenging, do the trail counterclockwise like it is recommended here. The parking lot isn't very big, but we went on an overcast Sunday morning and there was plenty of places to park. There are several picnic tables by the parking lot, in case you want to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy after your hike.

Parking is horrible!!! I went there two weeks ago and then just yesterday, I’ve seen they posted more “permit parking only” signs! And no parking inside because they’re so many people! Needless to say the hiking is great, no shades at all!

Fiancé and I did this hike yesterday. Quick, easy hike. Got it done in 45 with a couple stops of water for the pup. Will definitely do again. Designated parking lot and beautiful hills.

Found parking up front but lots of parking on a Monday near the school. Incline was something we both enjoyed as it was not something that lasted extremely long. There’s a part of this hike that is after you come downhill all the way, there’s a beautiful stretch of trees and foliage that made us both fall in love with the hike even more. There’s also quite a bit of shade that made the hike more enjoyable in comparison to Hellman’s Park (in close prox to this trail) that has almost no shade at all. Would come again because of the experience we had—there were also a lot of options for trails which was nice as well. Next time will try the Coyote Trail.

awesome short trail...get a good cardio workout running the trail. kids love it there also. might run into coyotes but fun to see the wildlife.

This trail definitely gives you a workout. Very pretty in the spring. Be sure to keep an eye on the signs because it’s very easy to get lost & end up on another trail (speaking from experience). I recommend going in a group as this trail can be a little sketchy.

If you’re looking for an easy & beautiful hike, this is it! Amazing for beginners. This trail is very short, but has enough little hills to give you a good workout.

different roads, same target... where family can enjoy nature and keep fit

good walk with the kids

I loved it. As a beginner, I would definitely recommend this spot.

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.
