Not as easy as described. The majority if the trail is getting to the hill, along the base if Cerro Cabrillo and along an old packed service road. The climb up the actual hill is a scramble, there is erosion and wear on the trail. Not great views at the top. If you want to practice getting through boulder scramble without trying it at the top of a mountain, this is good
