nice views from the saddle, starts to climb pretty good the closer to the saddle you get.

Hike this over half a dozen times at different times of the year. No coverage and hardly any breeze until you reach the saddle. Bring water. You dehydrate quicker than you’d thing for this shorty.
It’s comparable to Camelback Mountain w/o the traffic and better scenery. One of my favs in the area if you just want a shorter hike and want a rewarding view at the end.

A good up and back hike, with a steady incline the whole way up. The view from the saddle is nice. No shade on this trail if hiking in the afternoon, and there are a lot of loose rocks. :)

A fun night hike, looked like it had a lot of horse traffic and tons of dogs that nobody bothered to clean up after.

I enjoyed this hike. It a bit rocky but with proper shoes it was just fine. We got to the 'saddle' without problem within 1 hour and it is nice view! Met a gentleman at the top who told us the trail continued to the north and swung around to join up with Pass Mountain trail. We went about 1.5 km down the trail but then it disappeared (or we lost it). After searching for the trail for 30 minutes we gave up and returned the way we came. I wouldn't recommend that 'add-on' unless you know exactly where you are going. Overall an enjoyable hike!

Nice easier hike with rewarding views from the saddle. Dogs did pretty well on it. It's a nice dirt path the first mile or so then it gets a bit rocky. Not terrible on paws. Not too busy when we were there. Cost nothing to park. Definitely worth it.

I'm new to mountain biking and it was a little rocky for my hardtail. A decent biker would probably enjoy it more than I did.

I had to hike-a-bike to get to the top so I can rate the hiking as a little rocky but pretty easy.
