An eight mile lollipop loop connecting four trails in Porter Ranch. I’ve been on many hikes where part of the time is spent near neighborhoods overlooking houses, crossing streets, etc. This hike never gets away from that setting – houses are always in view and foot traffic on the trails is heavy. Porter Ranch looks like a nice neighborhood – clean, wealthy and well kept and everyone I passed was very friendly. As far as hiking is concerned, it was just a bit too much civilization for my taste.
