Once on top, to the east you can see the eastern mountains, rolling hills, and the Salt Creek Golf Course; to the west and south you can see all of Bonita, Sweetwater Reservoir, and Chula Vista all the way to the bay and the sea. Enjoy views all the way to Mexico, Coronado, and Downtown San Diego. No shade, rapid elevation change, very steep in some areas. Loose rocks! Be careful on your way down.

Nice hike up to the top with good views of the surrounding areas. The trial can get a bit confusing to be sure to use a map or this app. I did a sunset hike and I got an amazing picture. Will do again.

No shade or trees. A good steep climb but short. No water and you don't always get a good view. Great hike if your trying to get a work out in.
