Steeper in real life than what I've seen in pics, including my own. A bit scary coming down with my AmStaff mix tugging at his leash, but one step at a time. If I can do it, most peeps can. Added a couple of stones to a cairn.

Good hike. Trails are a little tricky but not hard to get on track. Nice hikers with nice dogs along the trail.

First timers may have trouble finding the trail to the cross from this location. The nice wide trail that runs along the park, baseball field does not go to the cross. That trail is right before you start up the first more serious rise on the wide trail, you'll see a steep, shortcut to the right going straight up the ridge. If you miss that, there is another one on the right after the same wide trail crests the ridge and then drops into a canyon. Both of these short cuts join the trail with the cairns.
It is very easy to get confused in this area as there are roads and trails everywhere, but it's a great workout.

Well I made it home, thank God! Put if you guys think of ever going up there for the first time, it would be best to take a guide. Seriously! Cause I got lost and couldn't find my way out! I had to make my own path down the mountain.
