Beautiful views as you drive up, the hike itself is nice but a bit claustrophobic at times. Hike is mostly shaded so good for hot days. My dog enjoyed it and we definitely had a nice workout.

Go early in the morning. The first part of the hike is this almost comically steep, sunny stretch of dirt and rock which is pretty intense, and needlessly so if you can go earlier in the day when the sun doesn't bear down on you so much.

After that, it's relatively easy going (in my opinion). If you can make it through that, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the incredible views you get as you walk up to the top.
