Good trail. I don't know that I would call it easy, though. Moderate, but not easy.

Just one more point that a lot of people below are mixing the hike with eaton canyon hike, which are the same on the beginning but while henninger is all about inclination ,eaton is a very short , easy and leveled hike for the family.

Beautiful hike, take enough water and make sure you reach the top because it's worth it , could be done in 2 to 3 hours. Decent elevation .

easy overnight pack in, perfect to try out new gear or to get away even if its only overnight.
Camp spots have small fireplaces and camp provides firewood. When i went there was a posted sign that said Water ( from the spigot at the camping spots ) needed to be filtered or boiled prior to drinking.
