I hiked this in late July. Although this isn't a long hike, there is no established trail and it is very steep. The view from the top is excellent and you can add your name to the logbook stashed in the ammo can at the summit. I did see some bear sign around the meadow, but not on the slopes, just be aware when you are close to the highway. One other point of note, there aren't many people on the trail, only 3 cars at the trailhead and I saw no one during my Tuesday hike.
