Beautiful, striking view of Mt. Adams at the top. I really enjoyed this hike. The first mile is breathtaking in the cardio way more than the striking beauty way. Steep though it is, even those that don't appreciate a workout will likely think the effort pays off. The trail is also extremely well-maintained with most invasives kept in check.
On a sunny day, you get one of the most fantastic 360' views. It is a tough trail if you are in as bad a shape as I've let myself get in, but it takes about an hour for me, and its always worth it when I'm at the top. You are going to want a lot of liquids and comfy hiking shoes because it is difficult and steep terrain going up! Give yourself extra time for breaks along the way.
