It's a nice place and view from the top is mind blowing. I was bitten by a monkey here. Beware!! I am not sure if it was my fault. I should not have gone too close to that one monkey at the top.

This place gives a good view of the city coastline and is the perfect place for sunset. And you can go there on a bike.

Sure can! Took me under 2 hours to get from beginning of trail to top of the mountain :) Enjoy! I used my GPS and walked from the women Buddha to the start of the trail... asked some locals along the way. Definitely go.
