This is a tough mini hike. It's steep but short. It's one of my top local favorites. Also it loops around if you continue to the back of the hill and turn right at the first right. The trail just wraps around the hill and brings you back through the canyon and around the front of the hill.

Very easy hike for a beginner, very nice view of the San Dimas, La Verne & Glendora. There are some steep slopes. But at the top of the mountain/hill very rewarding.

Second time hiking it, took only about 15-20ish minutes to get to the top. You get a nice view of San Dimas, La Verne and Glendora. But be aware there's heavier incline on the last third of it and no shade til you get to the top!
