The views from the overlook are nice (from the name I am assuming that you view the city of Ramona from the top). This hike proves to be a decent workout. Isn't a long hike (about a 4.4 mile round trip) but there is a good bit of ascent going towards the overlook. It is a very rocky path and is fairly washed out. I don't see too many people on this trail. Last but not the least it can get very windy at the top at times (as was the case today) so it might not be a bad idea to carry a jacket on a cool day.
