We managed to make it to the top in decent time.  This hike has only two drawbacks.  First is parking.   Parking is insane and we were there at 8:15 am.   Parking added another mile each way for me.   The other annoyance is there is lots of gravel and rocks.   While I have hike a lot in rocks the gravel is annoying because it is easy to slip.  Make sure you wear good shoes.   I saw many people in tennis shoes and some were sliding all over the place.  S&R had to pick up one person and it looked like a broken or severely sprained ankle.
