I've done this hike/run several times. It's always fantastic. Definitely just a hike for most, as it's no joke in terrain and elevation increases, but you can jog occasionally. There's a perfect N/S road on the south side of the trail that's a perfect 4 mile marker that you can see off in the distance as well.

Pretty gradual incline. Great views. And lots of nature to see. Go as far as you want. Great sunset spot down to the left before finishing the trail. Last time we even saw a great Gila Monster!
