Children (9-12y.o.) friendly. Very easy, with great views at the end. Go very early in the morning 6:30am for trail running, there’s a lot of traffic. By 8:30-8:45am the parking lot is full.

Decent hike to start your acclimation to the higher altitudes. Take along plenty of water because the air is dry. There are a few mosquitoes too. There were a few good views.
