While this trail certainly isn't deserted, its not like you have to shove your way through people, either. I would say during my 3-hour, 6-mile round trip hike I saw 50 other people or so. I certainly don't mind that, given the excellent maintenance of the trail. However, beware of unleashed dogs.
The trail is pretty much uphill the entire way, but never too steep. It gets slightly steeper towards the top. Great view of the northern/northeastern cascades before you reach the summit. Summit boasts decent views towards the peninsula and Olympics, but pine trees cover much of the view. Not really a great payoff in terms of a good view for the work, but the rest of the hike is charming.
