Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. Reviews Photos Tracks Paul Sartain (231) 3 months ago N/A: 5 Completed 1 Reviews This trail probably shouldn't be rated as easy. It is definitely moderate, with long slow climb and short downhill. The view at the top is nice but the trail is exposed almost the entire way and is not very well marked. Robert Walters (216) 5 months ago N/A: 4 Completed 1 Reviews What a great hike! Our map my walk app said it was 3.9 miles. It's a really good workout with all the hills. It does get close to the freeway but the view of the Santa Clarita Valley is amazing! The views inside the canyon are equally beautiful. About halfway through you can follow the creek trail SW a ways to a waterfall.
