Amazing hike! Pretty tough though, if you don't have good knees, don't try this one :) However, there's an access road leading to the final summit climb, so if you're exhausted, I'd recommend taking that up (or in my case, back down due to the sun having set and it being very dark). Either way, I loved this hike, one of my favorites ever. Do it if you're there.

Fantastic Hike with great views from the top. The the final push to the top can be a bit challenging, but it is well worth it.
