This was my first time on this trail and I went to go see the sunset. Make sure to not park in the gated parking lot as their is a sign that the indicates the parking lot is open from sunrise to sunset; however, when I arrived back from my hike after sunset, the gates were still open, but I would recommend parking along the street to be sure.

I took several photos of the trail and posted them. The trail is pretty wide at the start and starts to narrow, get more technical, and steeper towards to the top. I would be a challenge for kids 8/9 yo and younger. It's only about 0.8 miles to the top and once there, you can capture a 360 deg view. It's a little challenging to find the route going down that is on the south side of the peak, so if you may want to go up that way and down the north side. I recommend this trail, it's a quick payoff to stunning views.

A great trail for training. Beautiful view from the top. Challenging climbing and descending. And it's a loop. Heads up, there are many branch trails. Use the map on this app on your first hike
