During the summer, start no later than 7am so you can beat the heat. Nice view once you get to the peak.

Go early before it gets too hot. This is a hard trail for a beginner as I found out, but well worth it.

For inexperienced hikers this can be a bit strenuous. A lot of switchbacks and a lot of bugs. Once you get to the top the views are great. We started at 7am and at about 9am the temperature was already rising. A great hike to knock out in a few hours since it's local.

Pretty tough for someone who doesn't hike often. There are lots of bugs (especially by the bench at the top), and most of the trail has no shade. The view is great, but try to go on a day when it is less hazy.

Nice hiking trail, found a little bit tough in the very last part to the peak. Not much shade. A lot of bugs and flys during this season (which is very annoying when you make stops to take pictures:( ) oh, and I saw snakes twice the way up to the peak so I suggest to bring your pole when doing this trail.
