It’s a good alternative to the normal path which starts from the base.

Extremely scenic for such a short trail! I would really recommend it in combination with one of the nearby trails.

Update: AVOID WITH DOGS. After posting the below I've heard from others who have also returned with many ticks. Original: Very nice open air trail with beautiful views across the bay. One big negative is my dog came home with 5 ticks (while never going off trail). Would not do this trail with a dog again as a result. Aside from that it's a very nice hike with lots of sun followed by great peak views then a nice shared section. Would do the hike counterclockwise to get the sun out of the way in the first half.
