Not bad for urban hiking. It was perfect for the kids and kinda historic.

Great view at the top. Wearing shoes with good traction is recommended.

Took the longest route possible I think. Started at mission gorge and Jackson. Stayed west on the RIM trail then went to the Fortuna Saddle and to The South peak and down the stairs. Nice hike. My 5 yr old completed about 6.5 miles in a little over 3 hours. Saw 1 rattlesnake around 6pm- not a very hot evening either- keep your eyes open

Good trail, but watch out for snakes! It was a great but or respite from the over crowded Cowles mtn. Finished the5 peak challenge here, fun accomplishment!!!

Over good trail, some crowding issues, thats why its not a 5 star. Overall great exercise with a stunning view!
