This was my favorite desert hike, to date. The road was rough, but the trail was well-signed and easy to follow. It only took me 2H15M to the summit, then a 15M break, and then 2H0M back to the trailhead. I was really moving well, and I think it helped that I was in the morning shade for most of the ascent and had the sun at my back for most of the descent. Highly recommended!
