As a more advanced hiker, this trail was pretty easy. Definitely a good hike with a good view.

Good view. Starts with stairs. Nothing too exciting, but good to get out.

There is a very steep initial climb to get to the top but after that, the trail is easy and mostly flat or mildly climbs. Though, the view at the top is fantastic! Would be pretty easy to bring a picnic lunch or dinner to the top.

Fun but short hike. Challenging enough of you do some trial running. The big draw here is the views. Wonderful views looking west towards the ocean and north towards the mountains. Looking forward to coming back in the evening to see the skyline lit up at night.

Nice, casual walk. Steep in beginning. Great views. Got crowded around 7:30PM.

More of a walk than a hike. Not a huge incline, lots of steps. Pretty nice view of Irvine and UCI from the peak though.

Not a hiking spot. This is a walking spot. You climb some flight of stairs, climb a few steep rocks & get to the top to an amazzzzinggg view of Orange at the top. I went at midnight (no patrol I guess) and it was perfect. I would definitely suggest a visit if you are in the area.
