We got to trailhead at 7:30am with only 1 other car there already. Temp was 44 degrees. Perfect for hiking in my book! We didn't encounter dirt bikes or OHV vehicles till later in the day. Got to the summit by 10am for a quick bite and headed back down since we noticed lots of cars headed up. That's where we had to share the road with all the off road vehicles and the dust getting kicked up. Also, even though it was only about 60ish, it felt much hotter coming up off the rocks and dirt.
