Much more challenging then I expected. That being said it was 95+ degrees the day I completed it and there is absolutely NO shade. However making it to the top and seeing that cross made it all worth it. Great leg and glute workout due to the steepness in many areas.

Nice hike but it is a moderate trail with no shade & it's does get steep! :)

Great workout! Make sure to watch your map because it is really easy to miss the turn off.

great hike! It's a good workout. There were some solar ground lights up there but I think someone removed them. It's a shame.

It's a moderate hike. Good for beginner or if you just want a quick jog. You can walk your dog out there but I heard that someone had seen a coyote so It's best to be cautious when walking your dog out there.

excellent hiking trail! As another user stated, too bad people dump out there! I will go back again.

great hiking trail! I go there once a week, when it doesn't rain, that is. Good workout, especially for someone my age.

Good hiking, multiple side-trail options. Bike trails abound. Great views.

Extremely easy but good steep hill to get to the top. Next time i will hit all 3 hills

there are 3 crosses up in the hills. many trails to explore

Not much to look at, just an open field with a dirt road on the side of Menifee Rd.

Steeper in real life than what I've seen in pics, including my own. A bit scary coming down with my AmStaff mix tugging at his leash, but one step at a time. If I can do it, most peeps can. Added a couple of stones to a cairn.

Good hike. Trails are a little tricky but not hard to get on track. Nice hikers with nice dogs along the trail.

Great elevation gain. Excellent views. Sucks people trash the place by dumping.

Enjoyable hike with some elevation gain but mostly easy, well-groomed trails. Great for a cool, cloudy day!

Moderate hike with great views of Menifee, Murrieta, and Hemet valleys. Northern views up to March ARB and Moreno Valley.

Tried to find the Marine Corps flag but only found the cross

Good hike. Good view. Our 2 year old made it up with a little help.

First timers may have trouble finding the trail to the cross from this location. The nice wide trail that runs along the park, baseball field does not go to the cross. That trail is right before you start up the first more serious rise on the wide trail, you'll see a steep, shortcut to the right going straight up the ridge. If you miss that, there is another one on the right after the same wide trail crests the ridge and then drops into a canyon. Both of these short cuts join the trail with the cairns.
It is very easy to get confused in this area as there are roads and trails everywhere, but it's a great workout.

Well I made it home, thank God! Put if you guys think of ever going up there for the first time, it would be best to take a guide. Seriously! Cause I got lost and couldn't find my way out! I had to make my own path down the mountain.

Nice ice view, no shade. You can make the hike longer by using the surrounding hills.
