Good quick workout, don't do it for the views. Parked outside the gate (it doesn't open until 8am) Near the beginning of the gravel road up, there is a path to the left over a tiny bridge, it's a more wooded natural path that avoids a lot of the gravel switchbacks. There are a few spots for views of the valley which will probably be most clearly seen in the cooler months when the deciduous trees drop their leaves. Took about an hour to the 'peak' which comprised of two benches in the trees. No view. We hiked down the other side on the Cal Magnusson Trail where there are some neat rock formations. once at the other parking lot, we took the right side trail by the big rock and bike rack, which is pretty steep. as the whole trail system loops we basically just always stayed to the right at forks the whole hike. Hiked on a Saturday morning mid Sept. and as we were leaving it was starting to get busy. Arrive early to avoid the crowds.

Pretty quick to complete hike, not terribly difficult for kids. Mix of gravel road and well worn dirt trails. Not needed for the view, best for getting in shape for more strenuous hikes.

it was a fun hike with many trails leading to the same point, but there was no real good viewpoint from the top.

Decent up and down, the trail is well maintained. The views are 6/10. Good exercise trail, easy to get to, relatively close.

Really calm and relaxing to watch the sunrise up there

Nice set of trails with great foliage and trees. Some parts are HARD, but most of it is MODERATE. None of the trails are marked which can be unnerving, but you just keep going up and if you run into someone, they can show you how to make it to the top where the two benches are. There are trails you can use to avoid the gravel road and you are not likely to get lost.

Mostly a gravel road with no real view at the top. Didn’t make me feel like I was somewhere unique. Gave it a 2 instead of a 1 because at least it had a bathroom that was well taken care of. I am also not sure why it is rated as a hard hike. It’s only 1.5 miles up and approx 1,200ft elevation gain. The top 200-300 ft is steep but is a very short section in the grand scheme of things. Lots of dog poop and lots of dogs off leashes which there is a sign that specifically says dogs are to be on leash.
