Reviews

We read about this in the book California 50 Hikes with Kids — it is a relatively moderate climb 1 mile up to an old homestead that a family of four lived in in the 30s. Their story is very interesting and there are still some remnants of their home. It was fun to explore the top, where you’ll find ball shaped fish hook cactus, which may be in bloom in April, along with brilliant orange desert globe mallow. The ruins include cisterns, a wooden arch, and eroded adobe walls. The views from the top are cool and there is great free dispersed / dry camping adjacent in Little Blair valley where there is also a short interpretive hike to see native pictographs and mortars.
