There were hundreds and I mean HUNDREDS of lytta magister beetles (aka blister beetles) when I hiked. I did a little research afterwards and apparently they ooze their yellow blood when they get mad and can cause painful blisters, so I would stay away from this hike during this time! Beside the beetles, I thought it was a pretty view from the top of the mountain but it had a lot of loose rock. While you are hiking downhill with the rocky trail be careful because there are some parts where there’s lots of cacti that you could potentially slip and run into. As long as you watch where you are going and have good gripped hiking shoes you should be fine! Happy hiking!!

Nice trail. Could almost be considered easy. I like hiking through all the boulders. Lots of quail and a few cotton tails.

We were nearby and looking to walk somewhere quick. Good sweat, a lot of broken glass on the trails. Quails and lizards all scrambling around.

What a perfect little trail when we can’t get out of the city to hike. The path is easy to follow with just a few inclines to work calves and quads. The mountain itself was gorgeous as the sun was setting. Imposing boulders and a rising moon completed the aesthetic, with expansive views of the outer ranges surrounding.

great hike. easy to find yourself off trail but it makes it more fun. better to have actual trekking shots with some that have grip if you're going to hike to/along the top.

Record your trail because you can lose the trail many times. The boulders make you feel like you are in a movie. I’m glad I brought my trekking poles for one of the descents.

Take the first incline off 17th Way to get your heart rate up! Didn't make it all the way around, but did make it to the top. Must do this mountain again. Very much a challenge.
