I describe this as an easy hike because it is for me. Please be aware of your own hiking abilities before you sign up for any hike. Four miles and elev. gain of 600 may be too much for a beginning hiker. I suggest building up to this one if you're not used to small hills.
The description is as follows for the mini-hike: Talepop Loop Event Description: This is a relatively easy hike ( 4 miles 600' elev gain) with pleasant views of oak studded rolling hills. The hike starts out at Juan Bautista de Anza Park, connects with the Talepop Loop trail and climbs a ridgeline with nice views of both Liberty and Malibu Canyons.
