The ascent trail to the summit from the north side of the peak is not in very good shape. It is very steep with no switch-backs. Much steeper than the initial ascent from the road. The other side of the loop is much better. Great views. Absolutely no shade.

Good hike. The only reason I'd rate this as a moderate is for the initial steep ascent but other than that a very nice and easy going trail. Nice views of the ocean side and views of the plains on the other side. Once your at the top it would be a great trial to run. No shade but it's a short hike so shouldn't be much of a problem. Also plenty of wind at top

As a newish hiker, this moderate trail felt pretty hard, especially at the start. But if you survive the first half mile, it does get a lot easier (relatively) and the views are worth the effort.

Great short hike, def recommend going clockwise on the loop for a great work out! Take sunscreen, no shade on the trail and take good shoes b/c trail is steep.
