I love going before the sun comes out and watching the sunrise from the cross. Beautiful view! Oh and I went with my 8yo son, he loved it!

Nice, easy hike with our grandkids ages 11 and 14 as well as our Jack Russell. Bonus was seeing a DesertX installation at the trailhead!
Be sure to bring water for you and your dog!

Fun hike, moderate difficulty, we hiked afternoon and had plenty of water with us. A few less prepared turned around as they were out of water and their little dog was dragging.
