This place isn't marked on the Santiago Oaks Regional Park, but you can get there through the trails there. It's a nice little peak, but nothing too amazing. I guess the appeal was having a story to go along with this peak.
Anyways, there's several trails to get up there, from the parking lot a nice loop is Santiago Creek Trail, to Mountain Goat Trail to Barham Ridge Trail, keep going up, past the utility lines. You'll have to exit the park, but a short ways to the peak. You can then continue west, go down, and re-enter the park. Take the Oaks trail and take the Santiago Creek Trail back to the parking lot. Trails are pretty well marked. Just be careful of bikers, they come speeding down those trails pretty fast.
Was pretty shot down when I first got there. No singletrack whatsoever. I kept pedaling down the Santiago creek trail and found "hawk" and "bumblebee". Singletrack and double track, both very fun downhill trails. Brought my downhill bike which was a pig to climb with, but I still had a blast. Definitely something for everyone out here.
Oi. Don't bother. It's more for horses than for hiking. Parking is $5-$7
