My first and favorite mountain.. It's a great hike,amazing view! A lot of parking,picnic tables all throughout the area,bathrooms and dog friendly. If you can't catch the sunrise I would strongly suggest this as a night hike..(p.s it does get extremely packed during the weekends,but if your lucky you will catch the SUNSLOPE FIREMEN hiking this same trail WINK WINK)
steep but glad I did it
I parked over at the North Mountain visitor's center, took trail 100 over to 101, and then up to the peak.
It is a nice fast hike if you are looking for a good in-town workout. Great views but a lot of traffic.
Perfect for kids, plus the sunsets here are some of the best.
