  • Not spectacular, but it's a popular hiking venue with multiple trails, from easy to strenuous. All provide a stroll through desert landscape, and many provide excellent views of the surrounding area.  more »

  • Great hiking trails and family friendly. Can be a bit crowded since its not a huge area but still great. Trails are well defined and well kept. I enjoyed night hiking here for some relief from the summer sun and great city views. It does get dark so bring a headlamp.
  • I have two young children and it was an easy trail to reach the top. Fun for all ages and in a great location.
  • If parking closes at sunset, how the hell are you supposed to enjoy the sunset from the peak of the hike when it takes time to get back down, especially if it has rained and the trail is as unexpectedly muddy as it was today?? Revenue siphoning at it's best. $36 parking fine for getting back to parking 30 minutes after sunset with plenty of light -- for those wondering what an honest mistake costs you.
  • Great little hike place, a little over 2 miles if you go up and around on the trail. Friendly people, great scenery and watch out for the wildlife!!
  • Good place to hike if you live in the area. easy to access, several trails, cant get lost.
