This hike is mostly through recovering burn areas.  With some small patches that appear to have survived with little harm and the forest regenerating itself throughout, this hike offers a nice variety of landscapes to walk through.  The trail descends about 500′ from the trailhead eventually crossing and following Big Tujunga Creek, it then ascends 1810′ to Charlton Flats.  The trail is maintained and easy to follow throughout.
