Challenging hike. Terrace Trail is quite flat and relaxing, then you stay above the right side of the creekbed all the way up, which is nice, but narrow path with lots of foliage as foot traffic is low. Didn't see anybody else on the trail all day, so since it is quiet would recommend bear spray. Once you are above the treeline, "trail" is difficult to follow, we effectively made our own following the natural scree slides. Pick your spots and be careful not to kick rocks at your hiking buddies. We took about 9.5 hours round trip with some well deserved breaks and time spent at the top. View of the golf course is spectacular and that much more special if you've played the course before. Downloading is difficult, lots of crab walking, be prepared to get your hands and butt dirty.
