Hike was great! Arrived around 9:30AM. Parking was easy. Temperature was high 50's to start it off and had warm bits where we stripped light jacket layers.
Traffic on trail was relatively light overall. Hike starts wooded with gradual inclines. Terrain changes in the last mile with a scramble and inclines become pretty steep but manageable. Snow just after the scramble where trail is easy to stray from, but safe to make your own route in my experience.
Post scramble up the trial is pretty clear and obvious with steps made intermittently to guide. Got off track 2-3 times but was easy to find way back. Section right after scramble with steep ledge and pretty tough gradual climb. Rest of hike is relatively rocky. Peak is a scramble of sorts with a tight summit to walk along. Goats at the top along with some chipmunks that will steal your food ;P
