The trail can get really crowded during the weekends so start early if you can. Keep safe

Super quick and fun summit! The views at the top are panoramic and perfect for sunrise or sunset. The top has lots of rocks to sit in if you want to bring snacks/beers.

A nice short trail with excellent views. However it feels longer cause the incline is constant, definitely steep near end

Moderate to a saddle then a solid straight up some stairs/steep chaparral bound single track. A nice little workout! Definitely a decent amount of traffic so it’s worth coming early morning or weekday to avoid crowds. Great view of coast and out to mountains to west with major peaks all visible from El Cap out to Woodson, Laguna, Cuyamaca, and even Palomar etc in the distance.

This one definitely should be classified as difficult. It’s incredibly steep and rocky in parts (watch your footing!), and it was very crowded the day I went. The expansive views at the top are a wonderful reward, though...we could see all the way to downtown San Diego.
