Definitely not a moderate hike as far as the elevation gain is concerned. Beautiful views of the ocean and mountain valleys. Also the California poppies are in full bloom which add to the scenery.

Moderate in distance maybe, but hard in elevation gain. It's two parts of straight uphill climbing (or creeping for some). Its probably best to do in cooler part of day just because the heat adds to the difficulty. Be mindful of snakes. I heard a dog died recently from rattlesnake bite. Overall challenging and good. If you have joint issues, this hike may be a little much for you.

All Trails marks this as "moderate" but because of the quick elevation gain, I would say it's more of a "hard."
This trail is much more popular than I anticipated. Was there yesterday and the lot was full by 9am when I arrived. There was also a large rattlesnake on the trail. So please be aware of your surroundings if you venture up.

Bitchin flag at the top. Only about a 1,200 foot elevation but steep incline! Like always, bring water!
