Fun, modest hike two days ago. Would be an excellent place for trailrunning, but not having access to a shower I opted to hike the trail instead. Modest elevation gain until the last mile when a series of switchbacks climb to a ridge where for the final .3 miles to the top. Nice views of the park, desert, and city below. Bring lots of water. While it can be warm to hot at the trailhead, the summit can be windy and chilly.
