I took my little sister and she loved it. She wants to do more hikes! We took so many photos at the top with the incredible view. If you go up using the stairs, it's a nice cool down headed down with shade. Perfect for a hot sunny day.

A good hiking trail. Wear good hiking boots because one side of the ridge gets steep and rocky. No shade on this trail so a hot day will be HOT. Great views of the city no matter where you are though.
