Walking on Mt Rokko

Walking on Mt Rokko

I'm going to Arima Onsen via Mt Rokko, and noticed it's not very far between the Sanjo station and the Arima Ropeway station. I won't be lugging a suitcase at that point, so if the weather is nice, I'm thinking it could be nice to walk the route instead of taking the bus. Is anyone familiar with the area? Are there walking trails, or would I have to follow the car road?

Youtube video, Arima-Rokko peak (the other way around): https://youtu.be/QXO5kCRScrQ

The route is called Uoya-Michi (魚屋道), or the Fishmongers' Path (and you'd know why it's called).

Pardon me, 魚屋道 should be read as Totoya-Michi. As in the video, it's not a technically difficult hike as fishmongers had to carry across fish caught from the bay in the old times.
