Trail was a little overgrown but the views were amazing. We encountered some wild parrots in a tree near the trailhead.

It's a great workout and there was hardly anyone else there.

EDIT: Went back recently and two cars had been broken into in the parking lot. Do NOT leave valuables in your car!

I did this trail not too long ago with 3 friends of mine and we all loved it. I did the 10 mile version all the way to the peak and then kept on going until the decline eventually hit the highway. Great trail, it's a knee burner so bring some water and wear the right clothes . Start early morning at sunrise and you'll love it !
