Ascent Trip ReportGot good gouge on the better trails up this one from the guy at the Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor Center. Basically, if you want a decent hike, DO NOT take the trail from the corner of Navajo and Golfcrest. It's extremely crowded, even on a Thursday. Take the trails up from Santee or Barker Way. I only saw 5 or 6 people going up from Barker until that trail intersects with the main trail. Once on the main trail, I encountered at least 20 people. Good views from the top. It took me 30 minutes from Barker Way, so an easy hike.
