We may have missed the hiking trail portion of the hike, which according to the map is short. The ranger said that most of the signs are burnt down. The trail was all fire road the whole loop. This time of year the grasses were brown and most all of the trees are charred or burnt down from the fires a year or so back. Mostly mountain bikers on this road/trail. A good work out with some decent elevaion changes. My son liked it mostly for the adventure and father son time. I think I am spoiled, having hiked some amazing places outside of Southern California.
This trail is interesting because you start off hiking along a small river bed, under oaks and sycamores. The second half is on a broad dirt road overlooking the rolling hills of the area. Too bad that there are so many power lines crossing the hills. Although it was 90 degrees, there was a steady breeze in the canyon and over the hills. Apart from having to duck under some trees and a couple of steep, slippery inclines, the hike is easy to do.
