Hiked this trail in late May, early morning. Very beautiful hiking along the creek, lots of shade. I considered it an easy hike. We used Horton to get to the Highline trail which we travelled for a couple miles before heading back in. The Highline trail was much more difficult, but still very beautiful.

Oh, man I love this hike. It's so damn beautiful, the whole way. Ah. And the clean spring water at the end is to die for! Next time I'm bringing empty bottles.

Not too difficult of a hike, did it with my family (ages 6 & 8), forest views with a nice creek and a beautiful crystal clear spring at the end coming out of the rocks.
