Nice loop hike on an overcast summer day. No views from Church Hill, but some good overlooks on the way there. Watch for poison oak!
Pros: Free. Wide trail. Very few hikers. Some shade. Nice bathroom at the parking area.
Cons: Not a breeze. Many flies.
All up to all down hill with not a lot of shade in the summer. Some good views and a good picnic area at the summit.
