You can get there all the way to Double Peak park by car but it's no fun that way. Discovery Lake can be used as starting point for a nice hiking. Ridgeline Trailhead lot is closer to the peak if you don't want to take the long route.

Pretty good for running. I recommend starting from the twin oaks/San elijo rd entrance (across the street from the elementary school). Feels much more like a proper hike rather than starting from discovery lake and going through the neighborhoods. I give this path that I run 5/5, but starting from the lake 3.5/5.

Really nice view from the top. Trail is a good incline but never really feels like hiking until the very last bit. Most of the trail is road and well maintained path.

Nice enough hike.. good for those looking for exercise but partially through a neighborhood and paved? Not great for nature lovers.
