Awesome trail that allows you to get some good miles on the boots with minimal elevation gain. Nice views and sitting areas for a snack. Saw a herd of bighorn sheep on the trail, and just observed them for about 30 minutes before they moved off of the trail.

Will definitely do again. Recommend starting early to avoid the crowd.
