“Easy trail under the bluffs above Porter Ranch, with views of the neighborhood.”— Jordan Brown
There is very little shade except that provided by the bluffs themselves - so near zero mid-day.
There are good views over the Porter Ranch neighborhood and into the San Fernando Valley to the south.
Although this appears to be part of the Wilbur-Tampa Park, it is undeveloped except for the trail. The developed portion appears to be just south of the Tampa Avenue trailhead.
A short hike along Tampa Avenue connects to the Upper Limekiln Canyon Trail, while just south on Reseda Boulevard and through Eddleston Park connects to the Aliso Canyon Trail.
I think the elevation profile derived here overstates the climb and descent for much of the trail, due to the steep terrain that the trail contours along. Another program, working from GPS data rather than topographic map data, estimates about 160 feet of total climb in the round trip, 3x less than shown here. In particular, the climb at the Reseda Boulevard end is nowhere near as steep as the elevation profile shows. The other program estimates a maximum of 6%, with most of the trail below 2%.
