We were expecting The Gabrielino Trail to be more like a maintained trail, and not debris, leaves, rock, gravel etc. It feels like that contributed to fatigue. We took The Winter Creek Trail down, and after a few minutes the trail is easier to walk on. Start early and of course hiking is always an adventure.

it was a beautiful experience, the trail can be narrow but just be careful and wear appropriate clothing and shoes and you'll be good, ohh and take extra water it can be easy going down but heading up its quite difficult

Very steep and interesting, but lots of people and a giant parking lot at the top so I'm not sure if this for the people who like to get away from society.

I loved this hike. It is difficult but it is totally worth it. Beautiful view from the top. There's a water refill station on the top and restrooms. I definitely recommend doing this hike.
