Beautiful views on the way back, and gorgeous forest scenery. Not too difficult and a great family hike, especially if you get a great day of weather on the coast!

Start with the western trail for best views on the way up. At the top, be sure to veer to the left to see the military battery; very Darma Initiative like (Lost fans). I'm not exceptionally fit but managed the climb fine; helps to have so many photo opps to catch your breath.

So fun! I want to do it again! I would recommend going up the small trail and coming down the more wide, paved trail. The small trail (to the left at the start) has switchbacks while the other side is straight up hill.
