The climb itself was more difficult than anticipated (especially with my short, stubby legs) but still reasonable. Not much to see coming up or down but the view from the summit on a clear day has you seeing the islands off of Mexico all the way up to Del Mar. This is part of the Five Peak Challenge so worth checking out at least once. I don't see this as a trail I will do again anytime soon with so many other unexplored options.

two ways you can go, one its all inclined from the start and other one side a bit easier. Good workout.

Short hike with a steep incline. Make sure to wear sturdy shoes as the trail has been washed out in many areas. Definitely a good workout.
