You can hear the traffic most of the time. We went up Sunday the 4th of July weekend and we only saw two small groups of people. The trail was really over grown and many times we had to really search for it as we jumped over huge trees then scramble under others. Some points had overgrown bushes and washed out switchbacks! The climb was hard and long, straight up... and switchback after switchback! The intermitant views of the gorge were unbelievable...and I have to say worth the leg pain. It was an adventure, at times, to keep on the trail. If you're up to trail blazing up, up, up to a simple pile of rocks...go for it! AND don't forget to add a rock!
