We got there early, as recommended by other reviewers and it was already pretty warm. I was stunned how many people were doing this in their sandals and even heels! I was glad I wore sneakers and workout gear. Even though this is a short hike, it is steep and parts of the trail are a little rugged. The views at the top are fantastic and the breeze cooled us down for the walk back down. I think it only took about an hour and it was definitely worth it. Definitely take water and your camera.
