Great views and work out

We just did part of this trail today, but it was a great hike! Definitely easy to get off trail, and there are some steep/rocky parts that can get slippery.

Nice to do during the week when mission trails is less crowded. Going clockwise it's rocky on the way up but after the summit it's slick, wide dirt paths heading downhill. Wear good treads and bring water and sunscreen.

I did this clockwise today, and am not sure counterclockwise would be any better. Both directions have some rough downhill parts. I started around 830am and appreciated the fog.

Good workout! Climb up, then down, then up to peak, then down, then up again. Mostly wide service road type of trail until the fortuna climb.

Great hike with beautiful views at both peaks. Bring more water than you think, especially on a warm day.

Kind of boring and easy to get lost. There are also mountain lions here.

This should be moderate, not easy. Says good for kids, but pretty tough for my nine and twelve year olds.

A casual hike/run with a good view. Good boots or trail running shoes are required as the ground and rocks can be slick or easily cause an ankle roll.
