More like moderate. There are some tough switch backs that don't show up on this map.

Awesome trail! Kind of steep but beautiful every step of the way. We came across several small chipmunks that scampered all over the place. Too cute!
It took us about an hour and didn't see anyone else until we were almost done.

My daughter and I enjoyed it as our first hike celebrating this great weather. Looking forward to more. We started on Prospect and came out in central, and walked downtown back to prospect. Just hard and long enough. It took us one hour.

The trail is lovely and starts at one of the most scenic views in. Hot Springs. From the overlook, the first five tenths of a mile is fairly flat and easy. Good for people with mobility issues. Toward the back part, it connects with a more challenging trail, and has some rocks and becomes moderately steep. You can use the back section to connect the two sections and make the full loop. Once you get over the top of the mountain there are a few switchbacks and it flattens out again. Great for kids! Full loop estimated at just over 2 miles.
