Beautiful and fairly easy.
I actually did this as part of the loop trail to Sandstone Peak; the trail has a portion of well shaded areas especially as you get near split rock. At the rock location you actually have a well-shaded picnic table which is great for a short snack and watching others enjoy the rock. I love the Mishe Mokwa Trail for its many different rock formations and this trail definantly doesn't disappoint.
