It was easy and pleasantly sloping so you can enjoy the scenery rather than breathe heavily. The geology changes as you ascend which is cool to watch. At the top you get wonderful views of the lake. Start early and bring water as it is hot and you have no shade in midday. I got a citation for parking off the side of the road nearby even though there was no signage so be careful where you park.

Not a hard trail, actually gently sloping the entire way. But, it is 13.1 miles so I guess that's why people think it's difficult? A bit washed out in the beginning from all the rains but after the first mile or so it's in great condition. Beautiful view at the top!

Great hike. The path was a little squirrely here and there from the recent rains, but it was still a nice hike. I can't imagine this will be open for vehicles any time soon. A lot of the road, particularly near the trail-head seems beyond the capability of most 4x4s.
