We were on a busy road trip and this was one of our stops. We drove up to the hiking trails. One headed up the rim and the other went down into the volcano. We decided to hike upwards. It was quite steep at times and we are not exactly in top shape but we were fine outside of a little huffing and puffing. If you pace yourself and take advantage of the rest benches, it is not a difficult hike. It's relatively short and the views are spectacular. We forgot our water bottles which would have come in handy but all was well. The only problem I experienced was a swarm of some sort of tiny fly near the top that basically attached itself to our clothing. They were harmless but freaked me out a little. We had to shake them off.
I think it took us oldies about an hour to hike the rim. We were quite pleased with ourselves. We did not do the bottom hike as it didn't seem as interesting.
