Plenty of free parking, same as EJ Mountain.
The first mile of the trail is fairly unspectacular, but then it climbs and you get a little workout and some views of Four Peaks. Near the end the trail forks a few times and disappears up a mountainside without going to the top. This looked like a fun scramble, and would probably have earned a 4th star...but it will have to be an adventure for next time.
I did EJ Mountain first and this is a good warm up or addition if you want to add a few extra miles.

Very nice trail! We saw some deer and got within 50 feet of a group of wild horses!

Pretty easy trail that's clearly defined right off Usery Pass. Parking on side of road or across the street in lot for Bull Dog Canyon. Couple sketchy spots with a little overgrowth and loose rocks. Good for dogs, easy on paws and not a lot of cholla. Nice view, but not 360. Can continue onto Goat Trail to the saddle if you'd like to extend it a bit or continue over the mountain - the views are great. Goat Trail is a lot steeper/harder. Chance to see wild life. Good for mountain biking also, but to bike Goat Trail I'd suggest some experience.
