After the first big climb, there is a nice plateau with benches to look out on the city, all of the valley to the west, and downtown L.A. to the south-east.
Since I had another hour or so, I decided to keep climbing. I didn't expect to make it to the tower in the picture below, but this path was just so enticing...
Here's another picture about halfway up. This trail was pretty difficult. If you are taking the 134 East, it is really easy to see this trail from the freeway.
Rita and I made it to the top! The path meets up with another roadway that continues throughout the mountain range.
The way back was probably the roughest part of the hike, since the dirt was quite slippery at such a steep slope.
Overall it was 3.5 miles and I think took 1.5-2 hours, I can't quite remember. Here is the map: And one last panorama for you... the seams didn't turn out that great, but if you click on the photo, you can see a pretty clear 180 degree view:
