One of our favorite hikes in the desert. Easy enough for our 12-year olds, but please watch your step going up & down. It looks intimidating, but it's great fun, with the switchbacks up the mountain. Wouldn't recommend for a bike, but we saw nutters doing it. At the top of the switchbacks, walk off-trail to the right (East) side, up a little hill - at the top is an amazing panoramic view. Parking can be a challenge since this is a very popular trailhead for multiple trails, esp. on weekends.
