If you start from “the end” of the lot and go clockwise, you get big incline and decline in the first mile. If you start from the opposite end an go counterclockwise, it’s more gradual. • Rocky and loose rock 75% of the time • Good view’s, only shady when sun is low on the horizon • Proper shoes definitely needed

Perfect short hike, not too many steep parts, nice views of desert, city, craggy peaks, and homes of the obscenely wealthy.
