This hike should be rated as moderate/difficult because it is not easy. A few very short stretches of somewhat flat grades are a relief, but mostly it is a thigh-buster if you're going all the way down to Oak Flat which is 4 miles in. Lots of reliable water from the easily accessible -roaring- creek which you cross a handful of times along the way. So if you want to save some water weight in your pack, know that you can take your filter and refill in several areas. This hike takes you through very lush forest with the sound of the creek to accompany you, and a chance to see wildlife due to very light traffic. Very beautiful!

Nice hiking trail. unfortunately, the lower part of the trail is littered with downed trees and overgrowth. Dangerous along the rocky slopes.
With that said, it is very good hike with lots of great views.
