I have spent many early mornings and weekends hiking up and down this peak. The scenery is beautiful, especially if you can catch a sunrise.
1) Get there early. The trail gets VERY crowded and parking can be hard to find.
2) Wear sturdy shoes. The trail starts out with some stairs, but gives way to gravel and jagged rocks further up. (sunscreen is a good idea, too!)
3) Take plenty of water, especially in the summer
4) Stay on the trail. People get caught up here when they don't and slide down the side -- remember the gravel I mentioned? That stuff is REALLY difficult to climb.
5) Take your time and hike at your own pace, but step aside and let the fast people pass -- there are plenty who run/walk the trail all the time and are accustomed to the elevation gain.
6) Remember that the uphill hiker has the right-of-way.
