Easy hike, clear, well-marked trails. Take a picnic lunch and eat it while gazing at the ocean from on high.

This short trail leads to a gorgeous view of Frenchman Bay. For those less inclined you can return down after 500 ft but so you know peak bagging then next three can be done in a day. (The triad, pemetic and Caddilac)
