I loved this hike. it's fairly short but a real ass kicker. The trail is very steep the whole way up, but if your up for it, it is well worth it for the views. I did this on a chilly day, and it was quite windy along the ridge lines. There are very few trees, so the views incredible in every direction. make sure to sign the summit register if you summit. The last entry was from 5 months ago.

Nice trail, offering great views of the Tehachapi Valley that improve as you ascend.
Note, however, that No Trespassing signs have been posted about 1/3 of the way to the summit, and that to continue upward from this point you must climb over a barbed wire fence.
