High Point

Hard going up for the first half, easy at the top, and all down hill once you exit the cave.
Great vie of the city lights if you hike at night.

Points of interest:
1. There are multiple spots to stop, sit on a boulder and look at the city.
2. Easy trek once you are on the top.
3. Squeeze through Fat Man's Pass
4. Nice cool walk through hidden valley with some points where you will need to sit and slide down smooth rocks.
5. Walk through cave.
6. Great views of the city if you are walking at night.
