Great hike. Bring water because it gets hot mid-day.
Views from the summit are really awesome.

trail running

There is a great 5k loop in this park that I do almost daily. It's not a tough hike, but it is great for running! Lots of hills and the trail is easier on the knees than cement. Takes about an hour to do walking and a half hour or less running.

This hike is not my favorite as far as scenery goes. However it's a great location and great exercise. Very busy!

Stair stepper all the way up! Short challenging hike with great views!

Great trail, a little tough at times (especially toward the summit where it gets more challenging) to be confident you are still on the intended trail. But markings are "good enough" if you pay attention. Views are awesome, I'd do it again!

Challenging but oh so much fun!

Long challenging hike. Great views.

Easy hike . Great practice hike for a beginner.

Tough fun hike

Nice challenging, long, fun, great views, good folks, a bit scary, but not too much so to avoid. One of our favorite courses to hike in the city, the very peak is a little technical, but most of it is pretty straight forward. Bring enough water and a snack.
