Hiked the summit on a hot day. Despite the heat, the trail offered beautiful verdant views. The trail on the way down offered a labyrinthine layout with tall hedges along the path. Great hike!

I really liked the hike! I was surprised by the number of wildflowers, the views were nice from the mountain, and there were benches along the way. I like tree-lined hikes like this one and the fog made the forest look more interesting somehow.

6$ parking fee for cars, cash only on off hours. Trailhead is to the left of the visitor center.

Saw multiple banana slugs, California quails, and rabbits.

View is decent, you can't see too too far from the top.

Very lightly trafficed and very well maintained.

2.25 miles of uphill hiking with occasional flat part....perfect start not so grueling for some. There are benches BUT, view is obstructed. Weather is great if you like the warm overcast with occasional sun peeking. last 2 miles is a cool down. A good time to take in the beautiful sights...enjoyable escape.

We did this hike today! It was definitely moderate - difficult as it was a lot of vertical. The views were great despite the fog & it wasn't busy. Restrooms available at the trailhead & maps.
