Despite the name this is a hill which can either be climbed up a woody path with a steep bit at the end or approached via an old carriage road and it all ends with a nice view of the area.

It is an easy hike from the parking lot off Prosper Road. Not too much elevation and what there is is gradual. The view is worth it!
