So for starters, I thought this hike would be difficult from the reviews. Well I used my iPhone runkeeper ap and I made it to the very top in 23 minutes at regular walking pace!! Seriously I was going the same walking pace as everyone else. This is NOT a hard hike at all! I went in the afternoon around 3:00 on a Friday so there was plenty of parking. I paid the $5 (parking price) and I am so glad I drove because the worst part would be just getting to the entrance from the road below so definitely drive or taxi. From there like I said, I had plenty of energy and it's a regular slow grade up hill except for 2 sets of stairs. If it took me 23 minutes I cannot imagine it taking any average person more than 45 minutes. The views are just amazing so worth it!
