Great views. Started from the right side. Flowers were all in bloom! A good moderate hike, even at midday. Very rocky as mentioned, but not too steep.
Nice hike takes about 2 hours and a fairly good speed. If you go early, take the right trail. This will put you in the shade on the other side.
Beautiful scenery. The hills were not too steep and a good workout! Very nice!
Good for groups
