On the Aliso Canyon Trail - trash dumped on the side of the hills destroyed the serenity of the area.

...Don't dump Trash on the side of the hills people... that's why we can't have nice things....

Limekiln Trail is better in my opinion. When you enter at Rinaldi, a pull up bar on the left and exercise bars on the right side starts your warm up routine before treading on the trail. Further down you'll get to a small creek crossing and towards the middle part of the trail is a shaded bench area where you can enjoy the peacefulness of your surroundings.

An easy trail which me and my 10 yr old son enjoyed.

The hillside trash dump at Aliso Canyon is the reason I gave it 2 stars, other than that a safe and good place to burn some calories.

Did the Limekiln Canyon Trail this evening. The first mile is very nice. Once the trail leaves the canyon and runs adjacent to Tampa, the quality and enjoyment decline substantially. The stretches that depart from Tampa have very steep sections which I find annoying, not so much for the up portion but more for the down. I'm always concerned with footing and these portions are steep enough on the downhill to make footing tenuous. If you're looking for a quick couple miles of pleasant hiking do Limekiln from Rinaldi to Tampa and return. Better yet, a more pleasant trail in the Porter Ranch area is Aliso Canyon.

Did the Aliso Canyon Trail a couple days ago. Its a very easy trail. The trail has really pleasant stretches of oaks. Very peaceful shady areas. There are a number of stream crossings. Stream was dry so I can't say how difficult the crossings may be when there is water. Oddly enough I encountered a couple adults climbing trees. Thought that would be fun for children. Lots of potential trees to climb along the trail. Parking in Aliso Canyon Park is very limited so I'd expect it to quickly fill up on weekends. It looks like there is street parking on Rinaldi across the street east of the park.

On 4/24/15 at 6:00 pm there was a coyote that came out the trail onto rinaldi. it's not common, but coyotes are seen from time to time around Porter ranch since it's by the mountains. Just a heads up, maybe bring a pocket knife or a small metal pole.

This is an easy hike 3.8 miles round trip if you leave Aliso park toward Sesnon and back. Brisk walkers can do it in an hour. Horse an bike trail too so pay attention on blind curves but not too many people. Natural setting with seasonal streams. Nice!
