Hiked on 11/04/17. No parking where All Trails begins. Have to park at the Brush Creek TH 1 mile prior. So add 2 miles RT. Some snow, rain, fog, and a little sun made for a very pleasant November walk in the woods. Never saw another person! Didn't know there'd be splendid views of Teocali, as it was too foggy in the morning to realize it should be visible from the parking lot. But near the end of the big descent, the weather cleared and the peak showed itself. Magical! Would recommend this hike in the winter, but wouldn't waste a Summer day in CB doing measly little this one. Besides, in the Summer it's probably crowded by bikers.
