This is a great conditioning hike; about the first mile is uphill so expect a great glute/hamstring workout. The trail is paved, and leads to a utility building that is fenced off. Up and back with a little side trip to the cell tower took us 55 minutes with 2 dogs. Great view of the Hidden Valley golf course at the top. This is a lot more intense than Pumpkin Rock, but it doesn’t have any other trail options once you get to the top. Watch your dogs, as we saw a pretty beefy coyote at the top.
