HikingGreat!No shade

I came here on a Monday afternoon around 4:30PM, and I parked on the road along one other car, wasn’t packed. I initially got a bit lost but ended up asking for directions and got on the right path to the top. Views at the top were pretty good as there was more or less a 360 view, and there weren’t many people on the trail. No shade though so bring enough water. Took me about 40 minutes to reach the top, less to go back down although some parts were a bit steep and slippery. There were more cars when I got down but trail wasn’t crowded at all.

Good incline, nice views, went 10am Monday morning and found easy parking on Westwood St, not many people, came across a few other hikers, trail runners and bikers. Note: There is no shade along the trail

Beautiful! Trail is well-marked, the view from the top is spectacular, and the wildflowers are beautiful right now. Bring water and sun protection, as there’s not a lot of shade. It gets steep in parts but no rock climbing is necessary. Can’t wait to go back! I’d recommend planning your hike for sunset views on the descent.

Hike is really nice with recent showers, this trail shows up as moderate but is primarily an uphill trail to the peak.

This is a short but cool hike that starts at the end of a neighborhood and gradually ascends via a fire road. There are a couple semi-steep portions but they are short. The surrounding area as well as the summit has interesting rock formations. Part of the summit has gated antennas but they don’t ruin tue views. I went when it was overcast and ended up getting rained on during my descent. Enjoy!

Great!

I love this trail. Usually go after work around 6pm have been a couple times now. Have spotted quite a few owls while on our hikes and a coyote as well. Great view of the city. Definitely bring water as this is a for sure moderate level hike. Some steep inclines. But the view is worth it. Rarely see anyone else on the trail early in the evening.
