The area is very dry. Greeted by radio towers the path quickly goes into the mountains. At the top it leads to a couple of forks in the road. there is also a bathroom, tables, and a circular structure.

Making it to the towers and back is a rush. Love this hike!

Fun hike.
A lot of the trail is in the shade with a little waterfall at the end.

Should be rated as a moderate hike due to its gradual steady incline but not at all hard.

Definitely not hard. But moderate and fun! Good views from the top!
