As mentioned before in other reports, the trail is in great shape and it has a fairly contant elevation grade all the way to the top. It is quite a workout (for me). It took us 2 hours to get to the base of Haystack - sunset was around 7:20, so we pushed a little harder than usual to make it in time. If i was not under the pressure of time, i would have taken a more comfortable pace - I got there really tired.
All the effort was worth it. The sunset was amazing. The visibility was good, but not great - maybe it was because the recent fires.
In the links below you can find two 360o panoramas, the first from the rocks right after the trails gets out of under the trees and the second from the viewpoint close to Haystack.
