The first mile is not impressive. Absolutely no shade, so load up on SPF. The wildlife makes it bearable.

The second mile is several steep switch backs leading up to the peak.

An impressive view of the foothills. Stick it out for the top.

Very nice, easy trail. Saw about 12 deer at the top of the ridge. They let you get real close so I'm guessing this trail can get pretty busy. The views at the top are very nice and you can see blue sky all around you, which is a sight I'm not used to. Makes you feel small, but in the good kind of way, haha.

Fast and easy to get to. Didn't see any snakes at that time of year. Good workout. Nice views.

Great for families!!! The view at the top is amazing!! Only saw one snake, and we think it was a bull snake! There is a bathroom about a mile in which was perfect for my littles since there wasn't one in the parking lot! Will go again for sure!
