Trail is well marked and well maintained. Very runnable as long as your lungs can keep up. I had to take a few walk breaks but still held a strong pace on the steady incline. The parking lot was full, but the hikers I encountered were all nice; having witnesses actually helped me stay motivated more than they slowed me down. It was warm (80), but ample trees blocked the afternoon sun in several sections. I took a quick selfie at the top, then enjoyed the descent back to the trailhead.
