Comments
Comments: The trail from Halligan Ave was mostly dry, with a few wet and muddy areas. Some rocky footing on the second half of the trail, but nothing that poses a problem.

It was hot as hell when I did this hike (95 Fahrenheit at the trailhead), but there was a nice, cool breeze from the top of the stone fire tower on the summit. Good views from said tower as well.
