Great trail, we didn’t see a single person the whole time. Beautiful scenery and great view from the top of the mountain. Bring your hiking poles because the last portion is a bit steep but otherwise it’s a fairly flat trail. Definitely not hard, even the last portion that is uphill was moderate as long as you’ve been hydrating, bring plenty of water since there is hardly any shade! We parked at the first parking lot just off the road and walked in to the trailhead down the dirt road. I wouldn’t recommend driving to the trailhead unless you have a car suited for off roading since there are some bumpy parts. We also saw a coyote driving down the main road to the parking lot so watch for wildlife on the trail. The trail back and out was probably more like 12 km, not 9.4 km as listed on the app.
