Mini hike which you can do after a full day of working, especially if you just need a little nature-fix. Perfect for those people who have a 9-to-5 job, and want to get a bit of workout in before the day ends. Great views of the neighborhood, and also great for viewing the sunset!
From the parking lot, make your way through the park until you reach the bottom of a hill filled with huge rocks and boulders. It is very hard to miss.
From here, you can pick any trail you wish. They will all lead up to the top. There's a lot of rock scrambling involved, as well as boulder hopping, but the trail is mostly easy to follow.
Once you reach the top, enjoy the views and (if you come at a later time in the day) wait for the sun to set. Every now and then you'll see trains passing by.
Make your way back the same way you came in.
