The bottom part of this trail is a great place to camp of have a BBQ. The upper section is twisty, rocky, and somewhat steep though not overwhelming. I went up in my TJ and found it easy. I don't know if it ever rains in this location but you do not want to be on the upper trail when its wet. All traction would quickly disappear and the several hundred foot drop offs would certainly wreck you day.
If you are looking for a remote trail where you won't encounter anyone else, this is the trail for you. There is a main trail that runs all the way to the top but in the beginning, there are several smaller trails that branch off. It's pretty windy/chilly at the top, if you don't plan to stay there overnight, head back down early, it's almost impossible to see your way down after dark. The last few miles are not so much steep but very very rocky. I managed with a trail-rated Jeep Cherokee. Definitely a desert environment with lots of wide open canyons and tons of cactus. I would definitely revisit the Peak again.
