The Placerita Canyon Trail is approximately 4 miles round trip if you start at the Placerita Nature Center and turn around and come back.

Along this trail, you follow a meandering creek with tall granite canyon walls.

This is a good hike year-round and perfect for families as it is a very easy trail with only small gains.

There are benches along the trail where you can stop to rest or just sit and take in the sites.

The trail starts at the Nature Center and heads to Walker Ranch where you can also pickup the Waterfall Trail or the Los Pinetos Trail if you want to take a longer hike.

 Highlights: Rock formations, Oak Groves, Creek, "White Oil" seeping out of the ground at bubble pot.
Near: Newhall, CA

Distance: 4.0 miles round trip
Hike Time: Approx. 1.5 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Trail Condition: Excellent, well maintained trail.
Hike Type: Out and back, or you can leave at the Walker Ranch Trailhead.

Trailhead: Exit SR14 at Placerita Canyon Road. Look for the Placerita Canyon Natural Area (marked by wooden sign). Trailhead is to the right of the building.
