It's good exercise. View is great all around.. but anyone who calls a walk on pavement a hike, doesn't get out of the park a lot. The actual hiking is done on the many dirt trails that go up the sides.. nw corner being the best. Has great local rock climbing spots too.. middle of summer- morning hike is best or early evening. Note- there is very very limited parking within 2 blocks radius.
Really nice hiking place to go with the kid, nice of view no matter were you are, a lot rock to climb, a perfect moment with my granddaughter.
