Can't really rate this hike as I was unable to go on trail due to construction and pedestrians being prohibited. Notice reads "NO ENTRY PARK ENTRANCE CLOSED VIOLATORS MAY BE CITED"
"NOTICE ROAD CLOSED UNTIL MARCH 2015"

Totally bummed.

This is a decent area to hike. Not a lot of shade so bring a hat/sun block. I was hiking alone and ran across one of the biggest coyotes I have ever seen. He followed me on much of my hike. Not sure if he was stalking me or was just curious. I would suggest if you are hiking here not to do it alone. The hike is hard but challenging enough to get your heart rate up on some of the hills. It's mostly dirt paths. not a lot of "trails" in the traditional sense.

Coal Canyon Falls Trail

This is a nice little hike up the middle of Coal Canyon. The final half of this hike is basically trekking up a mostly dry stream bed. We went immediately after a pretty heavy rain storm so towards the back of the canyon, the falls were actually running, but we noticed there was significantly diminished water flow by the time we left, so if you do this hike to see the falls, be sure to go right after it rains. The Canyon itself was surprisingly quiet and peaceful, especially so when you consider it's proximity to a major freeway.

I did this hike with a group of six others this last weekend and loved it! maybe I did a different trail though because we ended up hiking a total of 12 miles. (or maybe I did this trail on top of a couple others?) The group that I went with had done this hike before so they lead the way and I followed. :-)
we were there on a sunday and their were a good amount of mountain bikers taking advantage of the trails and only a handful of other hikers spaced out intermittently along the way.
There is a good amount of uphill hiking on the trails we took but the views throughout were amazing. It is a little dry right now but when you get down into the valleys and look up the skies are so blue and beautiful it doesn't even matter (at least not to me)!
This was my third hike in California and I'm glad to be tacking on some mileage!! I would definitely do this again!

$5 parking, 2 hrs. 6 mile hike, gonna try to beat my time. Started my hike at the Rangers station. It was a gloomy beautiful day, saw 3 coyotes, which scared the crap out of me I also saw, what I believe was, a tarantula! Pretty cool! This trail has the feel of being deep in the mountains. Great views, although it was a cloudy day but a friend told me on clear days you can actually see the ocean.

Horribly ugly! I was mislead by the positive reviews I read on here. I saw no wildlife. 98% of the place is brown and filled with dead stuff. Don't be mislead by the pictures you see on here. You will hardly see any signs of life in real life. There were trucks and cars coming at me on the main hiking trail. It seems like it was beautiful in the past.. But it must of caught on fire. The whole thing is being remodeled and is under construction so I will come here again in the distant future. This place has potential to be beautiful but as of right now, it's not. On a positive note, it was a great work out because there are a lot of hills and its very tranquil.
