This is a short hike that is enjoyable year round and good for families. At the parking lot at the top of Michelle drive you start up the gated fire road. As you come around the bend, you'll see a road heading up on your left. Take this up to the summit. At the summit you'll be able to sit on the hill side and enjoy the view. If you stray off the road at the summit, watch for poison oak.

Great trail! Yes it is short as others have said. However, after completing the one mile, you can easily add on once you come back down the hill. Ample parking!

Low rating as your just following a Forrest Access road to a turn around point with no view. The only view is from the parking lot area. 1 star just because it still gets you outside.

This was an okay/easy and short hike/walk. I was expecting more views from the summit but when you get there it's just a flat overgrown area with trees all around. It was still a nice hike and walk, and when you park that offers the best view. Since it's a short hike out and back, we continued on the main road until we hit the old growth trail start if you want to extend your walk.

Perfect for a short hike. I like to hike 4 days a week so I do a super steep long hike then the following day I do this short hike to keep active.
