I give it 4 stars but dunno if I’d do again. I did both El Capitan and El Cajon today in same hike. I wish I had gone to the end of the southern trail so I didn’t have a reason to go back. I hated the constant up then down. It made it harder to look up every once in awhile and enjoy the majesty of where I was and that’s half the reason i hike. The other half is the challenge and exercise n you will get plenty of that. El Capitan had a great view but Cajon was better. I went through almost 5 liters on a near 90 degree day but I weigh 220 so make sure u r prepared. Trail was easy to follow till ascending Cajon. But there where markers that I just missed. Some people I passed on way up said they started at 4am. Enjoy n go before 10am for sure.
