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.

This was a great hike, although we hiked a mile in the wrong direction when we began. There are many switchbacks, but we didn't use them, we just hiked straight to the top. Its very rocky and slippery, especially on the way back down. I suggest wearing hiking boots.

This was a great hike, wear boots and bring sticks. It is very steep at parts and you WILL fall on your back on the way down. It was worth it though!
