Just did this trail in mid July and the amount of yellow jackets was surprising. I couldn't walk 5 feet without seeing 2 or 3 of them. The trail is very nice, but if you're allergic to wasps and yellow jackets like myself you might want to enjoy it in the colder months.

Nice fairly easy trail. The last half mile is a fairly steep ascent and will wear you out. Some nice views at the tops.
