Trail is pretty easy. I am not in great shape, and completed the trail with little difficulty. The trail has a couple nice views and you pass through a few areas surrounded by bamboo. If you want a easy hike and don't mind driving up some twisting roads this could be the hike for you. But if you don't do this hike I would say you aren't missing much.

One of many trails on tantalus, you really are on the side of a cliff nearly the whole time. Beautiful views but very windy. Try using a walking stick to maintain balance just to be sure.
