Nice walk with good steady uphill slope. Not much to see at the top but still enjoyable

Very pretty in spring. The best way to hike here is to take the left before you reach Couch Mountain and take either the left or right at the fork (adding this part as an out-and-back trail). The whole walk is spectacular.
