It's a beautiful and challenging trail to finish for beginners (it's moderate for experienced hikers, just long). The view at the end is simply amazing. Since it's an out and back hike, the end of trail is effectively the midpoint in your journey. I completed it last August with a friend who's new to hiking and we managed to finish it in about about 9 hours. There were a few streams on the way and we filled water from them. The views are gorgeous even before you reach the peak.

The hike is fairly flat in the beginning (once you've finished the upslope on the road) before it becomes very steep uphill and finally you walk from one mountain to another (slightly steep) in order to reach the end point after a stretch of flat land.

The views are worth the effort totally and I definitely recommend this hike.
