Lots of dogs and small children made it to the top, although I'd say the trail is probably a little too rocky for most dogs to enjoy.
Smoke in the air obscured the views...
In general, I'd say this is a an over-rated hike. It's nice, but not really nice enough to warrant the crowds. Also, because of the rocky nature of the trail, I feel that nearby Mt. Dickerman is actually an easy hike (despite longer distance and more elevation gain).
