Ran a trail race Half Marathon up and back on this trail in August. Great experience, but hot. Amazing view at the top. Worth the climb.

To me it didn't really feel like hiking because the trail kept intersecting with the road (you can also drive to the top). At the top there's a parking lot and a visitor center. Only benefit to this is there is bathrooms in the place to fill water at the top. But I didn't think the view from the top is worth the hike.

The views at the top are spectacular, but the trail itself was ok. You can drive up if you want. The trail is just as described, 3.5 miles up, 3.5 down. It's a constant incline that makes for a good workout, but heading back down was pretty tough on the knees.
