I took this trail but I started at the little parking lot to the east. A nice little trail, and a good challenge. Nice boulders at the peak to sit on whilst snacking on a banana.

Pretty easy in and out trail. Free parking. Views were good. Lots of erosion and climbing around bushes that seemed to be half-tree half-undergrowth. Wasn’t too hot, but has some good incline with slippery dust that can be challenging (especially when coming down).

Short hike that really works up a sweat. The view from the top is great and it wasn't very busy (on a Saturday!) which is a huge plus! My pup loved it!

Always a favorite hike to do when I need/want a hard workout and don’t have enough time for something longer. On a clear day you can see the hills of Tijuana and as far north as La Jiolla. Can’t leave out the incredible ocean views either!

Nice, short but steep climb. not exactly the best for trail running, very uneven and loose rock, but fun! great views.
