It was a little hot but overall very enjoyable and beautiful! We had a perfect blue sky with sunshine but we were looking down on a hige layer of fog in the distance where we had drove in from which made for a really cool transition in weather. The panoramic views on both sides of the mountain were breathtaking! We took the side trail on the way up which had a bit more tree coverage and shade which was really nice, trail conditions were great. I highly recommend this hike!
