  • 600 steps to get to 540+ feet. Great view of the island all across. You can clearly see the airport, California Lighthouse and the ocean on both sides of the island. The steps are steep at some part and are moderately strenuous.
  • Training, adventuring and great views of the island.
  • Great view and a heavy work out! Resting places on the way, but no handles on the side.
  • Great hike up
  • This is a healthy workout. The top was disappointing, as you don't have a clean view all around. Be prepared for a giant concrete structure with antennas attached. You'll have to navigate around this structure if you expect views of the entire island.
