Just road this trail in the late morning. Perfect weather, no crowds(weekday). As stated in the trail info, the first miles are uphill. Not steep but very doable. Great views as you go up. The day was pretty overcast with smog so no ocean. As for the single track section. Horrible. At least the first 1/2 mile or so. Deep ruts on the narrow steep sections. Made riding not enjoyable. When you manage to get past the rutted section the rest of the single track was very nice. Reminded me of the Gabrielino trail. at the least the last 2 miles of this trail. Final thought. I would take this trail up to the T intersection and turn around(axp 3-4miles up). If you decided to try the single track section, be prepared for a really challenging time with the deep ruts with a small gratifying section after.

In my opinion there are too many ruts on the singletrack. Plus the fire department recently destroyed the very upper parts of it. You can still ride your bike there, but it's kinda ugly now. However, the fireroad is one of the friendliest that you will ever encounter in Southern California. Not too long, and there are many parts where there is no hill at all.
