Nice quick hike to the peak. Easy until the half way, then the last leg starts to get a little steep. Nothing to incredible to see except a great view of Lookout Mountain to the West.

Decent hike, not terribly challenging, and was completely empty. There are a lot of prickly vegetation growth along the trail, and you can get off trail on the SE side of the mountain fairly easily. There is some wild life here, saw some lizards, a family of jack rabbits, and two hawks decimating that family of jack rabbits.

Didn't go all the way to the summit but was definitely a fun and challenging hike

The trails were a little crazy and unmarked. You never lose sight or sound of the city.
