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.

Surprisingly enjoyable. Started basically in a residential neighbourhood but quickly gave way to a decently challenging, well maintained, guided hike with a fantastic view at the top. I expect it would be fairly busy on weekends though (I did it during the week).

Great walk from discovery lake to the park. Good for a trail that is easy to access and long hills for a great workout.
