Great hike, views are totally with the uphill. The first 1/3rd is along the creek and in the shade which was appreciated in the heat. The signage for the peak is not great but we followed the signs for E Camino Cielo and then just took a right to head up the back to the peak. The last part was a bit loose and steeper but it's not for long, and again the views are worth it.
I'm and old guy with a bad hip. Left parking lot at 8:45 AM. Took ATV trail. Got to lookout at 12:15. Came back down on park road. Back to parking lot by 2:15.
Moderate, even workout
Moderate ATV traffic
No other hikers
Coming down on the park road was dangerous due to traffic
Not sure if I had a unique experience, but this trail is definitely sketch! It's not hiked very often so the trails is overgrown in a few places leading up to the school house. The trail leaving the schoolhouse east is really hard to see! My friend and I got lost and had to back track. Also, watch out for wild donkeys
