I started on the West end because the lookout is closed most of the time and I knew that when it's open, it would be crowded. There's no shade cover to speak of so it's a good Winter hike. A good workout for a day. It took me 8hrs but I took a long break in the middle at the lookout. The scenery changes from the East Mountain. I found it nicer but more crowded. I parked at the East end and was dropped off at the residential area on the West end at 43rd Ave. and Estrella. I wouldn't park there. It seems safe but your car is pretty exposed. Nice scenery and a good 15.5mi workout.
