Easy hike and the view at the top is worth it. There's other ways to backpack in and make it more challenging, and I suggest you try it if you're up to it. Bring a hat if you're doing this later in the day. Some bug repellent wouldn't hurt either.

Great hike. There are a few ways to summit, and the standard route provided here will take you along a fire road to the top. Along the way, there are a few chances to bushwhack up the ridges for a quicker and more challenging summit. We went on a pleasant spring morning, though I could see this getting hot in the summer on the more exposed slopes (~30% of the standard route). Great hike though and excellent views of the IE, LA and beyond.
