The trail is beautiful, lined with walls of brush and the occasional deciduous tree. First time hiking something other than Stonewall in Cuyamaca. Slightly under three hours to get to the peak and back. Would say this is more easy than moderate, but still a great way to spend the morning!

This is a great moderate hike for a beginning hiker, out of shape hiker, or someone who wants to grab a peak but not be dead afterwards. It is a very gradual climb up that you barely feel until the last .25 mile or so when you hit a few switchbacks. Beautiful views from the summit.

We actually took the east Mesa Rd up to the turn for the peak, gorgeous meadow at the top. 6.4 miles round trip 950 gain. Great to do if you are with others, wider than a trail, watch 4 mtn bikes, horses, 1 state park truck...

Great trail- a new favorite! It wasn't steep at all, not too hot (August late afternoon), and had fantastic views. We barely noticed we were ascending a mountain until we were at the top. It's very gradual and pleasant. We also didn't run into anyone else while we were hiking. Highly recommend!
