The worst hike I have ever been in 7 years.
Not worth it!
No trees, no great views, and because of the dirty small water on the top there are mosquitoes even in winter!

Good and quick workout. Starmaster towards the end of the trail. I didn't see the concrete with 'potato'.. hmmm..

Loved this hike! The last leg as steep but a great challenge. Nice wide trail and well maintained, no graffiti, lots of dogs...REMEMBER TO PICK UP YOUR DOGS POOP. I seen a couple 10ish year old kids who rocked it but no babies in carriers, the trail is wide and for the most part smooth enough for a jogging stroller with bicycle tires but it is very steep at the end and could add a whole new aspect to the workout. If you did take a stroller I would suggest staying on the main trail and not go all the way to potato mt.
