It was fairly steep up hill for the majority of the hike, I went up Jones trail to Flume trail and all the way up to the Monte Vista Hill view point. Which, really isn't much of a view point unless you enjoy a view of the city. There were many manzanita bushes, and there are plants that seed in pods and it was so hot that you could hear them popping open! That was definitely an interesting thing to hear while hiking, there are golden poppies and some little purple flowers along the trail but mostly it's just manzanita bushes.

Short ~3mi hike. Moderately steep- so great for weekend 50min fitness while getting sun hiking wearing shorts and tank top.
