Without a map it was a bit confusing (a number of separate trails to form one loop). Well maintained trail, although there was some elevation gain. A bit harder than 'easy', but nothing strenuous per se. Nice scenery, but nothing really special.

A little crowded but very nice place to hike. There is a lot of history to learn here.

it was confusing of the loop. it a maze of trails. red town then Indian trail, then quarry trail, coal creek falls, then cave hole trail. it was pretty nice with fresh gravel for the trail head, and the trails are well maintained. we even had a Bob stroller.
