Great trail! Moderate hiking with a gradual yet sometimes difficult elevation increase. We started at Elena Gallegos, Pino to the Crest trail, all the way to the Tram. Stopped for refreshments and to refill water. Took Tram to the bottom ($15.00 ticket one way) then another 3 miles back to the car in the Elena Gallegos parking lot. Total miles approximately 15. I would recommend starting by 6 am so the last 3 miles are not in the hottest part of day, or park one car at bottom of Tram one at Elena Gallegos. This was second time I've hiked entire mountain and it will always be one of my all time favorite memories. Take at least 50ml hydration pack plus couple extra frozen water bottles. I highly recommend you enjoy the restaurant and view for a few minutes to savor making it to the top.
