The weather looks to be perfect for a SoMo night hike, and I've never hiked the Warrior Trail.
Maricopa Peak is a gem and that's the plan via the Alta Trail which follows the ridge of the Ma Ha Tuak Range. Fantastic views of the city lights the whole way.

Start time 6:30p from the Warrior Trailhead on 19th Ave (2 miles south of Baseline). We should be back at the TH between 9 and 10pm.
~6.5 miles including a little reverse lasso on Ma Ha Tuak.
