Hiked this on Saturday, October 3 in the early afternoon. Was able to find a parking spot, even though it was the weekend. You have to hike flat for a while before you start ascending the "bell." The trail markers become harder to find as you start to ascend and we were definitely off the trail for parts of the hike. We had to use our hands a lot on the steep parts, but it was just dry rock, so not a big deal. The view is great as you start to ascend and there's some fun people/family watching to do in you want to find a spot in the shade and watch hikers climb by.
