The trail itself is only.07 miles with a steep incline. Beware of TICKS!! My dogs maybe sniffed the bushes a few times and they were covered in nymphs!

It was fairly busy, with a lot of people bringing their dogs (us included). First half is steep, but it is a short trail so it doesn’t last that long. The view is always great

WalkingGreat!

great trail, very step at first but there is a nice bench for a break once the hill becomes less step when you are closer to the top, and moat umportantly its an amazing veiw of the city.

HikingGreat!

Such a great hill. If you’re looking for a solid hill for repeats or just for a short challenging hike, this one is good. The road itself is old: tiny loose rocks and little potholes here and there, so make sure you wear shoes with some grip on them. Once you pass the first bench, the incline softens up a bit!

Pretty steep, but the relatively short distance makes it easy for beginners. My fitness level is beginner and i was able to complete it in under 40 minutes

It's basically a paved steep uphill climb. There is a nice little observation point at the top of the trail. Lots of locals use this trail for their workout. It only takes 15-25 minutes to get to the top of the trail depending on your fitness level.

Paved trail begins with a steep incline then levels off for the second half of the ascent. Views at the top of the town of Lompoc and the valley out to the ocean.

A nice quick hike, although this trail is paved, which never quite feels like hiking to me. I didn't read any reviews, so was pleasantly surprised that the "easy" trail was actually a good little workout, due to the continuous elevation gain, all the way to the top. A nice view of the surrounding fields is your reward. I wish there was a designation between "easy" and "moderate". The length qualifies this trail as easy, but the elevation would push it towards moderate.

Short but steep. Best view of the Lompoc Valley short of flying over.
