The first few hundred yards -- on a badly eroded, trash strewn fire road next to the freeway -- weren't promising, but once you get past that, there are grwat canyon views. Townsend Peak is an easy, bush-whacking scramble on a use trail, though I don't recommend it for Golden retrievers, unless you really like picking out burrs.
