I love this hike. Going to Potato Mountain via East Face was amazing. I loved the inclined gaining 1300+ ft of elevation was superb. Via East Face, the trail was very steep, slippery and the made it HARD to hiking. I recommend this trail for the experience hiker. Once we reached to the top of Potato Mountain then we took Evey Canyon MTWY to go down. So, we did atleast 3.5 miles for this hike. What I like about taking the Eas Face going up was the scenery. The sunrise, the view of the city were very astonishing. View was just breathing. Definitely going back again.

It's a good local hike. Nice oak trees and stream at the beginning of the trail. However it is just the fire road up to the top of the hill. Makes a good everyday hike.

We must have looked like flowers to the bees... got chased twice. The hike was a bit strenuous (the entire trail being an uphill battle) and the summer heat unfortunately did not make it much easier! The path was clearly defined and there weren't many people on the trail. I would definitely recommend doing this hike in cooler weather since there is very little shade except for the very beginning. If you enjoy hiking, try out this trail for a small challenge. The view on the top of the mountain isn't anything extraordinary, but it sure is a pretty view!

Very good workout. Should be labeled hard not moderate. The incline on this trail begins immediately and continues to become even more steep. Take caution near the bee hives. There is some shade in the beginning but not much after that. I absolutely loved this hike!
