Overview

Easy to access, fairly popular climb. About 1200 feet of elevation gain over 2 miles (one way).

Description

Go to the end of the parking lot, cross the road, then follow the trail. There are a few intersections that might be confusing, but the trail is very clear.

The first half mile or so is in a gully. You'll eventually climb out of the gully and reach signpost 30. Bear left here, and you'll reach signpost 31 after another 0.25 miles. Take a left again, up a steep section with switchbacks. After about a mile you'll reach signpost 34 - take another left, and you'll be at the top in about 0.1 miles.
