Nice hike through oak forest, lots of leaves on the trail in November, quiet on the trek this time of year until you reach summit where an auto road brings many more people. The tower was cordoned off but it looks as if there is upgrading to the almost 100 year old structure is pending. I'll climb (or drive!) again to check it's status!
Perfect day for a hike! 2 hours up and back to lower parking lot near check in. Note: you can drive up to trail head if desired
Nice hike with a great view. Bringing a little water will be helpful.
