Be sure to enough water. There's a nice hidden spot with running water!

This trail is a great day hike and workout. The incline is steady so it's challenging, but not strenuous. The views are nice and the trail is very well kept and clear. You may come across some large lizards called chuckwallas. They're harmless and very cool to see! I can understand why some people may get confused with the signage, as the trail does fork a couple times. I suggest having the AllTrails app recording and checking it when you aren't sure where to go.
