can trace the coastline from Point Loma to Point Dume, spot both Santa Catalina and San Clemente Islands, and scratch your head trying to identify the plethora of mountain ranges and lesser promontories filling the landscape inland."

This hike is crazy hot in the summer. I went in May and the wildflowers were great and the temps were in the mid to upper 60s. There is nice tree cover along the way. It is a challenging hike but the views of the canyon, all of Orange County, Catalina (and more) make it worth it! Bring tons of water.

Pretty strenous hike, even for people in good shape. Awesome views of the canyon and beyond once you get higher up. The peak is not much of a peak due to the radio towers but still cool. Many exposed portions so better for Fall/Winter/Spring. Bring lots of water, I went through over 125 ounces.

Great Hike. Spectacular views from the top. Highly recommended for anyone in OC to see the sights. Allow plenty of time so you dont have to rush the hike.
