We started this hike at 7pm, did it clockwise (via Saddle Rock) and hiked in complete shade, as other reviewers suggested. It was pretty tough to start. I would say it was about 45 minutes to the top, but honestly, I didn’t realize we were at the top when we got there so I didn’t check my watch! If you go clockwise be sure to stop and take in the views on the ascent. Those are the best views of the beautiful mountain range. You don’t get a grand view at the top so stop and enjoy while you ascend. After reaching the highest point, the trail is a lovely walk through the woods mostly on a gradual downhill. Our total trip was just over 2 hours and we were in no particular rush. Very light traffic- only saw 6 other hikers.
