After Hours Activity This hike is excellent for beginners. It is pretty easy hike (1,500 ft elevation gain over 4 miles rt). If we are lucky we may see some para-gliders at the summit. Views from the summit are amazing. Pace will be moderate. I tentatively scheduled this hike for Tuesday, May 18th but I will pick Tue, Wed or Thu depending on weather condition in order to maximize our hiking experience. Check the final date one day before the hike.
