Well you won't get much, if any, shade here. So schedule your hiking early AM or in cooler weather. Carry water. You can refill by the restrooms. There's a wide network of trails leaving from the parking here. Most hikers head towards the summit. Probably about 2 miles with a mild elevation gain until the last 1/10th of a mile. You can scale the summit. It's not really difficult. But be careful on the downslope. Fairly steep with lots of gravel. Without a trekking pole for support you very well might slip. Most hikers return the same exact way. But you need not. Grab a green trail map from the kiosk at the beginning and study it. There are a couple of alternate easy ways back, both emanating from the saddle. Views are simply spectacular. Rattlers may be around, so watch your step. Also mountain bikers prefer certain trails, particularly near the base area. Trailhead is easy to find. There's lots of parking but, if full, try the equestrian area. Families might also enjoy the Jane Rau nature trail. though not handicap accessible, it's a pleasant 15 minute loop best starting from the shelter alongside the restroom area.
