We go here sometimes because we live nearby. It's okay. It gets prettier the farther you go, but count on zero shade. Depending on the time of day/season, come packing some sort of bug repellent for the mosquitos.

Clean bathrooms. Saw wild billy goats on out first trip out there. Lots of people for sure, but plenty of space on the road. We've gone about once a week all summer.
We run, so this is a great choice. Notice to hike, but the wildlife is great.

Take plenty of sunscreen and water, as there's no shade.

We frequent this trail as it is easy for kids. Gets busy but still plenty of chances to see mule deer. Keep walking and it gets more beautiful.
