It was awesome to go higher and higher up the mountain and all the clouds go awayaway. The sun was shining and it was beautiful. Started around 7:20am and the temp was 45°. It only got better from there. Trail was in good condition. Shaded until the trail intersection. At that point it was, up up and up:). I saw 3 snakes and tons of lizards. Not many people on the trail until we were on our way back. The crazy part was when some bikes started going down the same trail we were on. Up and back by 1ish. We were enjoying the hike back down. Lots of taking and some slower walking. I would recommend to anyone.
