This is one of my favorite hikes. If you can just make it past the initial switchbacks, then you’ll probably be fine. After that, there are some lesser uphill climbs (there are routes around some of them, if you want to skip some!of the uphill portions), but it’s generally a very moderate hike with great sight lines all along the trail. This trail in my experience tends to be a busy one and it also allows motorcycles, of which there were more than 10 that passed me on my last hike.
