This is a great hike but definitely a steep ascent bring your poles for the way down, I'd rate it more moderate than easy

Tough initial climb in mile 1 then more subtle. Cool views. I rated 3 as once at too it's just loaded with trash, glass etc. watch for loose gravel.

Great Hike, had 18 y/o and 9 y/o kids with me. They loved it. Head over after the hike, to cold springs and reward yourself with some great ice-cream at Moo Moos creamery.
