Nice easy going hike. Great way to spend a January morning. Only took about two hours, we didn't really stop anywhere. Some spots were a little technical and you have to walk up the road at the end a little bit. We went early enough that there weren't many people out yet but by 10:00 the parking area was full of cars.

Was lucky to do this trail the first time with a group who was very familiar with it.
Would definitely rate this Moderate due to quite a bit of rocky areas (small and large).
End of the trail can be done a few different ways, and can be VERY tricky to stay on the trail.
Beautiful and diverse hike, all sorts of terrain and views- amazing how many different types of ground you cover in just the 5 miles.
Getting to the trailhead is doable in a passenger car (don't be worried by the dirt road and bumps, I made it fine in an Elantra Coupe).
Not even enough cell reception to check in at the trailhead (or on the hike) so keep this in mind and make sure to have maps printed out beforehand
If you get the chance to do this with others who know it, jump at the chance!

Nice hike but really hard to find the trail in a few places. Can't beat the views.
