Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Beginning at the informative TreePeople facility in Coldwater Canyon Park, this pleasant loop explores a portion of the 128-acre Wilacre Park before meandering through the shaded suburbs of Studio City. From there, a dirt road traverses the opposite side of the canyon from Wilacre Park, completing the loop."

I ride this trail at least once a month. Where else in Studio City can you ride steep single track, cross a ravine, swing on a rope swing, ride through a rain-forest and meet treepeople?

I have seen all sorts of wildlife and very few people.

An amazing urban retreat

For biking this is a fun quick little trail I like to do on my lunch break. Starting out at the tree people facility it's a racey section then you come to a fork in the road. I definitely recommend making a left at the fork if your on a bike. There's a wide open downhill track you can get some good speed on but better yet if you like to get loose the multiple little trails off to the right make for some adventurous riding especially if you don't know where the hell your going like me my first time. After learning though I went around again and was able to take the good sections with some decent speed almost going down twice. At the bottom you basically go through the gap in the fence make a right on the street, another right on the next main street and then a left up the hill at the end of that street which puts you on the trail head to make the short but vigorous climb back around. With a pretty cool nature factor all in all this is a good little ride.

There are 2 ways to ride this trail. If you turn right on the loop it will take on the street where you ride down on the paved road. Then you get to climb on the fireroad. Or if you go the other way you will climb a little and have a disend all the way down on the fireroad then climb on the paved road. If you just starting out I would suggest doing the second option thus taking the easy way to get up.
