There are actually two ways to do this hike. But either way the trail is not as easy as it may sound. Make sure you have good boots as the trail resembles more of a dried up creek bed with all sorts of stones and rocks. the surface is not stable. This trip we actually started at a place called green spot which increases the elevation climb as well as the length of the trail to a five mile trip. while it is known that there is no water supplied on the hill, it should also be noted that this is a DRY MOUNTAIN. The tributaries on the map by August are quite dry. We stayed over night but not at the peak. The sites to actually pitch a tent are kind of spread out a bit and there are PLENTY of rocks to lay on. The trip has very few switch backs and coming back down can be as challenging as going up. The Summit was beautiful and majestic. I would probably say that this trail is on the higher end of moderate. You can see more about this at the Southern California TrailBlazers' web site, www.socaltrailblazers.com
