I am in recovery from a broken leg and ACL surgery. I was happy I wore my knee brace for this hike. Getting up was no problem, took 40 minutes with stopping a few times to let other people who were faster go by. I was a little more cautious going down and used poles. It rained a lot during the week so most of trail was mud and the rocks were wet. The Mountain House Trail was labeled very well.

Really cute small hike! The top is pretty crowded but plenty of space and views! Fun to do with friends!

Really nice hike. My wife and I did this on February 20th. It was a warm day for February and a lot of people were out. Parking is easy to find next to Gregory Rd. and trail head is across the street.

A local favorite, takes about 30 mins to get to top with a minute rest or two in there during the real steep parts of the trail.
