It's scenic, but it's about being difficult more than it's about sight-seeing. Only for people with solid mental fortitude and a touch of sadism. Bring more water than you think you need and lots of sunscreen. Personally, I loved this hike. I usually keep a fast clip and rarely take breaks on the trail - Boney humbled me a tiny bit.

Would definitely recommend long pants for this hike. Areas of the trail are overgrown and shorts will give you rashes if you're allergic to wild grass. Bring plenty of water/snacks and start early, it gets hot on the Newbury Park side of the trail. Once you're on top of the mountain you can feel the cooling ocean breeze. Would have given it 5 stars if there was less overgrowth.
