1st mistake I parked at Meander Ln. and my 2nd mistake was I didn't wear my hiking shoes thinking this was going to be a super easy hike. This is a moderate hike suitable for dogs. I did it in the afternoon and there was nobody on the trails so my dog didn't use her leash and was so happy. The views are beautiful and you can see the ocean....this is a good workout (steep climb at times)

First time on the trail today. Beautiful views, great work out. Mostly uphill on way to flag pole and down, obviously on the way back to car. Great local trail. Will be back.

One of my favorite hikes, I love going up to the flag pole in the morning before work. The view is awesome and there's sage growing everywhere. It's a little steep at times and because of the recent rain, it's a little rocky and parts of the trail get narrow, but it's not an issue if you are a regular hiker. Bring sunscreen if you burn easily and plenty of water, especially on hot days. Shade is limited.

Great hike with intermittent inclines giving us an overall great workout. Will definitely go again but on a cooler days as there is no shade and temps in high 80's today.

This was a great hike! It's a moderate trail as the inclines can be a bit challenging but there are beautiful views of saddleback mountain and the city. Love it.

Great view up top near the flag. It is a steep climb at times and loose gravel but we did it!
