I went up there a few days ago. My wife had never been and she wanted to see the view with snow covered peaks. It was as beautiful as ever. (that is, with the trees having been burned a few years ago, it looks as good as you would expect.) But really, It is easy to do in a day, and the view from the top is breathtaking. It makes you feel like you are nothing but a small dot in the world. I say everyone should do this hike at least once.
PS Watch out for the last bit of the climb when its cold. The rocks get a little icy!
