This was a short but challenging hike. I parked at the Arroyo staging area and started there as the suggested trail entrance was overgrown and not as ideal. I encountered a buck on the lower part of the Vollmer Peak Trail. The Lupine Trail has a lot of loose soil, so make sure to wear good shoes with traction.

Solid trail with great views. It is open for about half of it (so sunny) and rocky. If starting from the Quarry Trailhead, going up via Seaview trail and coming back via Big Springs trail is the more strenuous route.
