We hiked this when it was about 75 degrees out, and we were very hot the whole way up and back. There are very few shade spots. The trail goes on and on with innumerable switchbacks, but the views from the end are just phenomenal. Be certain to bring plenty of water for this one - it is pretty draining, but absolutely worth it. If you want to take on two trails in a day, hit the Hidden Canyon trail in the morning, and do this after an early lunch.
