The trailhead is a bit tricky to access by car; you can only exit the highway going east...and get back on the highway going west. So if you are traveling westward, do some reseach on which exit you can turn around on to get back to the trailhead (sorry I'm not of help here...we came from the west).
We were there on a Wednesday afternoon in September, and probably saw close to 50 people on the trail. It is pretty steep, so you do have to pull over for people passing up and down. Do bring water, and hiking shoes...while only a mile, it is a mile going up. It went fairly quick, and the lake at the top was beautiful.
Just before you get to the lake, the rock steps get steep, but there is a railing to help.
There are toilets at the parking lot.
