I'm a advanced beginner hiker and found the trail to be difficult but doable. It's pretty rocky at times with steep inclines and declines. A few stream crossings which were fun! Watch out for the scary bridge crossing 15 mile creek--it's not attached at the other end. Alternate route for crossing creek recommended (go through the creek).
