Good family day out. Two adults and a 5 year old with hiking experience. Distance was in our range, elevation gain could prove to be challenging for those that don't get out there as often as they like. About 4 hours total with brief stops for the view and lunch, plus the optional trek up to the summit. Recommend going up the north east route and finishing on the southwestern Juniper trail around sunset. Could be a very hot journey during summer. Unparalleled views of the Bay Area that provide perspective and regional orientation. If elevation gain and loss isn't a problem, this is absolutely worth the time and effort it takes to get to the trailhead.

very beautiful views, we didn't do the entire trail. if you have children and they aren't used to the inclines it may but a little more difficult for them. We just did the juniper, turned around and came back down.

Nice loop. Starts with the uphill and the rest is pretty easy.
