Great hike with perfect scenery. The day I went it was cool and clear and could see for miles. The trail was kind of crowded but everyone was so friendly. There were also a lot of mountain bikers on the trail but they seemed pretty experience to deal with a lot of foot traffic and vice versa. I was able to park in the park parking lot but there is a lot of street parking as well. If your new to hiking or haven't hiked in awhile this might not be the hike for you. Coming back up is all uphill and my two buddies who thought this was an easy hike are still very sore after two days doing it.
