  • I didn’t know the difficulty of the trail, I have a knee injury so didn’t want to over so it, I went up for like a mile or so. It was challenging enough to feel the excitement and work out but easy...

  • Easy to get to the trailhead. The climb start immediately. Plenty of stopping points to catch your breath and enjoy the views.

  • Actually there is plenty of parking off the side of the road, have to walk up the pavement a ways until you reach the beginning of the dirt hiking trail. No facilities. Awesome hike! Steep, yes, with some brief flat areas near the top. One false summit. Longer than I thought it was. 35 minutes up.
  • The parking is a few hundred yards away from the trailhead (which is in-between two driveways.) The trail is a continuous but steady incline, the views are pretty spectacular all the way up, but the view at the the top is unbeatable! Virtually no shade mid day so don't forget water!
