Great hike. Hard to find the trail to the very top. Not clearly marked. The hike is well worth it. Great views when you reach the top.

This is a great hike. Like most of the reviews, it does get a bit confusing near the summit. Fortunately you'll have a phone signal the whole time, so using this app will help you navigate the loop. We got a little bit lost on the way down and had to bushwhack a bit to get back to the trail. The hike is a great departure from the "shopping mall" atmosphere of nearby Mt. Woodson and Iron Mountain... It feels quite remote and rugged, despite being flanked by a residential neighborhood. We saw only 2 other people out here on a Saturday afternoon. I would recommend pants instead of shorts due to how narrow the trail gets in spots. I kind of like the fact that this hike makes you stop and think, and use your sense of navigation when the terrain becomes rugged and confusing. I'll definitely do this one again.
