Great for trail running! Nice and easy slope. If you head up to the first peak (past the power line towers) bring some hummingbird food to fill up the memorial hummingbird feeder ❤

This start next to Smart and Final (previously Vons) on a fire road and has a steady incline to the top. Unfortunately this area has some transients and their camps on the side of the hill in bushes. Even though I have never seen anything bad happen I recommend other women to have a good dog or go with friend. If you want to shorten your hike you can turn around half a mile up where the incline opens up.

It is a nice and smooth fireroad. The climb was steady but not too steep from the Vons side. Sadly, there is a LOT of trash near the entrance gate. It would be a good clean up project for some organization. I wish I knew who maintained this property.
