May want to check out in advance as it is a bit steep. If you take that access point, plan ahead to meet further up the trail by the Montclair parking garage on La Salle to join others, and let us know you are coming.

We should be able to do the walk in 2 hours. Be aware of time constraints though if you are in paid parking.
Some may want to shop and/or have lunch in the selection of Montclair restaurants afterwards.
