I climbed up to the picnic tables with my wife and 11 years old daughter. It was a steady climb on a good trail. We did fine with sneakers, but the trail was dry making slipperiness not an issue for us. It had lush tree/plan for most part with some clearings providing view of the east shore line. I did not see a sign for the trail head. Just see cars parked on your right as you go from the highway. I had read somewhere that I may come across guava trees with fruits I could eat and was disappointed to not find them! For a family with just average fitness, this was a good workout, but nothing too strenuous. Allow 2 hours.
