Loved it. Beautiful hike with beautiful views. Not a long hike at all but great for quick morning or late evening exercise.

Did this hike with a friend of mine and our dogs a few weeks ago. This trail does not mess around. It is a steep 3+ miler. Great workout. Excellent conditioning trail as I train for Mt. Whitney. There is no shade along the trail and minimal shade at the top. Be sure to bring enough water as it does get very hot. It's a fun, no-nonsense trail that I am definitely going back to. Great find in the local area.

Great place right in middle of the valley to rollerblade or bike. Perfect for rollerblading as the flat surface is ideal.

I go here all the time because I live in Burbank. If you'd like a quick hike in the city with excellent views and not many people, then go for it. The hike splits in two a couple of times. The first split (second bench): you go left and you'll either go left again to a flat that over looks the city or right and see an old building (like the photo). If you go right at the first split, then your going towards another split. The second split: you go left and meet up with old building trail... and then it takes you to a picnic table with a beautiful view. If you go right, then you see "one" chair... keep going and you'll see two chairs. Keep going, and you'll go to the radio towers. I haven't been further than that yet. I love this trail because at night, you can see a beautiful view of city, and the fire road is wide enough that there isn't any worry when trekking.
