An easy one way trail with little elevation gain that is highly trafficked near Warner Springs, California. Most hikers do it as an out-and-back trail for a total a little over 6 miles. Most of the hike is beneath trees, while the last mile is exposed across chaparral and open pastures where it can be very windy. The end of the hike is marked with wonderful picture rock which is best photographed in the early morning. Definitely a fall to spring hike as it will be warm here in summer. The hike is dog friendly.
Take Hwy 79 to the CalFire Warner Station (Station #52) South of town. There's a small, open parking lot past the entrance to the fire station, park along the road, or in the city resource center across from the trail (on the north side of the street.) Bathrooms are available there. The trail head is towards the bridge which goes over a washout and begins with a gate installed to prevent animals from accessing the highway. There are signs confirming the trailhead for Eagle Rock.
Kids can do this hike easily if they can walk 6 miles round-trip. Gentle inclines and a clear trail.
