    Very nice trail! Short but definitely sweet. The path is extremely well maintained and there's a great little nature interpretive shack along the way. We're fortunate that important ecosystems like this are being protected.

    What a wonderful discovery this was! It was a reasonable vertical challenge without the typical Southern California hiking crowds. The portion of the trail that passes through the trees and over the two bridges is fantastic, and there are great views of the canyon all along the trail.

    Most of the way, one can look down to the parking area, and on this particular Saturday morning, we only saw one other vehicle pull in, and we never saw anyone else on the trail.

    There is the added treat that along the ridge line, someone has cemented two very comfortable wrought Iron chairs on top of a boulder and provided a wooden stair case to gain access. The chairs provide a panoramic view to the North and were wonderfully cool with the breeze blowing over the ridge. I have no idea if the chairs are on private land, but there is a "welcome" mat at the bottom of the stair, so we considered them community property!
