Very short and easy, I don't know if it even counts as a "hike." The trail is paved and has little elevation change the entire way. The view is fantastic, but it is very populated, so expect to see other people. There are also some small unofficial trails if you have kids/teens that want to be more adventurous, but it's a fairly small area.
This is a moderately strenuous hike that is almost entirely uphill to the top. The upper half of the trail is pretty much a rock climb. The path is well-defined and there are steps made out of rocks, but it's challenging. The view from the top is a magnificent view of the valley below depending on the weather.
really nice, super easy walking trial. Good place to just take an hour out of your day and get some nature in. Part of the trial is literally right net to the highway... but it is still a nice walk even with the couple of minutes of city noise.
