We hiked this trail as a family in August with a 7 and a 5 year old and chose it because it was rated as moderate and was relatively doable distance close to home. It turned out to be a 6 hour wondering partially due to weather delay but mostly because of how eroded and how poorly marked the trail is. There are multitude of run offs which makes it hard to follow the trail. Great views at the top and challenge are the rewards! Honestly this was harder for us than Stanley canyon that was rated hard.
