Completed this hike on a cool Santa Ana breeze day. Spectacular views of the ocean, downtown, Mexico and Jamul. The trail is steep at times and rocky due to recent El Nino rains. Saw 8 other hikers on the trail so not that crowded. Will do again.

The majority of the trail is a less-than-fascinating washed out old jeep trail that seems to be closed to off roading now. Once you get near the top, however, it's really fun. I would suggest having at least a little bit of climbing experience before trying to get to the peak; there are some tricky spots. It took me 3 hours to do, but I didn't stop a whole lot. On a cloudy day it was pleasant, I even hiked into the clouds which made it more interesting. Fun hike!

Frist hike of the year for my son and I. Really enjoyed this one. It was cool seeing the quite few mine shafts through out the trail on the way to the top. The trail is bad but can get tricky coming back down due to turns if your not paying attention to your route. When we got to the top it pretty much socked in for view but on the way down you could see to the west.
