awesome view, beware of Rattlers- one of my friends almost got bitten. Take lots of pics, fairly step climb over rocks.

Locals use the first half as a "workout"
hill but the real hike starts at the top! STEEP concrete road leads to the top and the towers. Then you will enjoy the last half of the hike to the flagpole hiking the ridge with views for miles! You can continue past the flagpole for about another mile if you desire and turn around.

Nice short trail, good to hang out with friends or to relax, enjoy the view. It will be really hot in the summer though

Fun and somewhat challenging when doing the paved incline. The best part is from the radio tower to the flagpole which only takes an additional 10-15 minutes.

Good trail. Good valley view. Good for visitors. Would definitely take other visitors here.

Great exercise trail. Much prettier if you go beyond towers and over to the flag. you can even stay on the ridge all the way to the South end and come back for about an 8 mile hike

Great hike, not easy by any means, steady and steep incline (10%+) all the way up. First 1/4 mile is very uneven dirt and rock straight path. Then once you reach the locked gate is paved and curved all the way up the antennas which makes it more difficult. Heavy hiker traffic of all ages at all times of the day. For a 40+ yr old 400lb person this was very difficult, had to turn around 1.3 miles into it.

Wow! Quite the hike! nice views. I would say the up part of the hike is strenuous, down is moderate.

steep tough climb, will breath heavy most of the way up, only relief is to stop or is on the way down, paved most of the way
