This trail may be closed the third weekend of May due to an annual race.

Description

To start, park on Milne Road near the post box and make your way toward the small gates that mark the start of the service road up the mountain. Follow the paved service road up to the top of this small mountain.

Approximate time to the top will vary with your pace, but when we visited it was about 30 to 40 minutes. There are picnic tables near the end that make for a wonderful lunch spot. The total ascent is 275 meters and there are numerous great views along the way. Enjoy!

Flora & Fauna

Some of the local wildlife include chipmunks, squalls, mule deer, western rattlesnake, and various specious of birds. However, due to the popularity of the spot it is difficult to spot many animals.
