Please don't go hike on this trail. It seems the land is now private and hiking is treated as trespassing.

Great views but getting to the top isn’t the best. Pretty slippery and very steep ... once up there it’s pretty neat, especially around sunset. We looped around the water tower ... ran into locked fence with barbwire which was a challenge

This hike was very steep and highly recommend bringing a walking stick and appropriate shoes. There was a lot of gravel and loose rocks making the end a very slippery descent.

After a steep start on loose gravel jeep track, take the walking trail on the left. It is easier going, but meanders back onto the jeep track. It's worth doing all three flags. Views are nice and it's good quick cardio. Less than an hour, there and back. A hiking pole may be useful for the slippery sections.

Climb is steep and slippery due to the loose sand and rocks. Really nice views of the area from the top. Would say this should be labeled moderate instead of easy.

Not the easiest at the start, but a good, quick hike. 3 peaks with good views.

A surprisingly strenuous, short climb over slippery trails to the top. A good view all around. Be careful on the way down. Sort of a mini Cowles Peak.
