Easy dirt road. The elevation change is pretty steady. Great view at the top! Totally worth it!!

Okay in the winter but too hot in the Summer. We just did this a couple days ago and the heat was brutal. Bring a hat and a few liters of water. That dry heat combined with almost no shade will get you! Lots of the trespass trail is overgrown with tall grasses so do tick checks often and wear pants. Nice views though

3 hours round trip. BRING BUG SPRAY AND A HAT. Views are great hike is pretty boring majority of it on double track road. Did I mention to bring bug spray? Also heads up on the poison oak.

We ran it and it was difficult. I would say this hike is a little more difficult than moderate.
