You can get there all the way to Double Peak park by car but it's no fun that way. Discovery Lake can be used as starting point for a nice hiking. Ridgeline Trailhead lot is closer to the peak if you don't want to take the long route.

not as rugged or away from everything as I'd like, but challenging and the views are spectacular at the top

Great view, wonderful trails, lots of places to wander. Not too strenuous in my opinion, and the trail seems to be well maintained. Seems also like a good place to mountain bike.

The view from the top is exceptional.

Here is an overview video of the trails:
