Amazing views, but I would rate it as difficult. Bring some water with you, too hot up there.

Very pretty trail but muddy today from the rain. Bring sticks if you have them so that you don’t slip

Beautiful! Not shaded so bring hat, water, and wear sunscreen. Short and rocky hike. Only a mile to first pillbox. Easier going up than down bc rocky. Enjoy!

Be safe. Watched two helicopter rescues while at the summit. Lots of loose rocks.

Great trail, steep with ropes at parts. The lookouts from the ridge after the second pillbox are great. Short but intense hike

HikingGreat!

Beautiful views, a little crowded, but once you pass the pillboxes that’s where the real beauty starts. Most people stop at the second pillbox. Pretty good workout too!

Did this trail at 4:30pm on Friday. Parking was pretty easy. The hike itself is easy and I did it in Adidas sandals because my hiking shoes were soaked from an earlier hike. THE VIEWS ARE AMAZING!! the entire hike is on a ridge with 360 views on the pacific and the island. It even rained a little on our way back from the 3rd pillbox but that only brought an amazing rainbow. Must do hike

We parked our car 800 feet away on the street at 9 am. Somewhat crowded already at the pillbox when I got to the top at 10 am. If no stop, should be able to do the round trip in an hour, but you do need to use hands, trees, and ropes sometimes

HikingGreat!Scramble

Fantastic hike with great views on the ridge line. It was a bit hard to find parking in the neighborhood then a short walk through the residential area to get to the trailhead entrance. The first part is pretty steep with a couple ropes if needed.
