We had great weather for this hike.  The trail is well maintained.  We arrived late-ish (8:30 am) to find the parking lot full. There are several overflow spots so we were able to find a place to park.  The early switch back are the most difficult on the hike but I think overall it's a moderate hike.   I met several six-pack-of – peakers on the trail.  On the ridge near the summit are a few weather worn trees, short, thick and gnarly.  One of these, the Wally Waldron tree is on the ridge.  It's the third oldest limber pine in the US and the oldest in California.  It's quite a local treasure.  I enjoyed the hike and look forward to going again.
