“A short trail in the Trebek Open Space offering great views of L.A.”
— John McKinney
The Bantam Trail begins just beyond the pedestrian gate on Wattles Drive. Hike on the Trebek Open Space Connector
to reach a sharp right turn that leads you up the hillside on the steep singletrack of the Bantam Trail. After climbing for about 50 ft. the trail becomes less steep and soon levels out to a more manageable grade. From here, gradually ascend further up the hill until you reach a viewpoint that lies just below a trail junction. Enjoy the views and once you're ready to continue make sure that you stay to the left at the trail junction to keep following the Bantam Trail. The path will then take you along the east wall of the of Nichols Canyon until you reach the end of the trail at its intersection with Nichols Canyon Road.
