Drove up on a fairly nice road albeit narrow making you wonder what was coming around the next bend. Short hike to summit with a small scramble to the highest boulder. Incredible views of Santa Barbara and coastline.
I have hiked up this peak many times via Tunnel Trail and also traversed over to Cathedral Peak for a loop hike. It's a great training hike with ~3000ft of elevation gain. The views on a clear day can be amazing.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
