This trail was an ok trail. The views were nice. The trail from the highway to the power lines was an overgrown fire road. From the power lines to the summit, the trail was very small, steep, and overgrown. Make sure to wear pants for this peak. On the first false peak, there were a ton of flying ants so that was pretty annoying. I just had to bag this peak.

I started with this 4.5 mi hike to Hoyt Mountain to the water tank. Decided I didn’t have enough time to complete the entire hike with the sun setting in an hour or so and didn’t have my headlamp. Turned around and did the 1 mi hike. Complete mistake. Keep with this trail. The other trail listed for Hoyt Mountain is not much of a trail. It’s going straight uphill with a whole lot of loose gravel. The 1 mi hike was very sketchy. The view was great but the terrain going uphill/downhill isn’t. STICK WITH THIS ONE!

I actually did the out and back from 2n79. it's a nice trail with great views. super close to the city and no one on the trail. There's a camp with wooden teepee at the top.
