Went at 9am on a Sunday, end of July. The trail doesn’t offer any shade, and it was already in the 90’s when I started. A couple of steeper inclines but beautiful views. It took me a 2+ hours but I’m still in the beginner category. The extended loop wasn’t busy at all, only ran into a handful of people at the beginning, but most of the trail I was by myself. Definitely recommend, just bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and maybe a hat or umbrella. The info center has maps, really clean bathrooms, and a small gift shop.
