We were on a schedule but had some time to check out Moss Glen and stroll some of the trail. There was 4 inches of snow and it made for a beautiful picturesque walk. Parts of the stream were frozen which looked really cool and the falls in winter were incredible...truly no words can fit the bill! There is a little bit of an incline to get to the the falls and after that the trail levels out and is pretty darn flat. We walked some of it but turned around part way as we had to be somewhere. I can't wait to come back again and spend more time here!! This is an easy hike for sure and a photographers dream!
Nice hike, somewhere between moderate and hard for a novice 32 year old hiker. Well maintained trail, easily viewable markers, and amazing view at the summit. Felt longer than 3.1 miles and quite windy at the top when exposed to the elements. Would definitely hike again.

It was an easy walk. We did this walk in the beginning of November and it wasn't busy at all.
It said moderate, but for someone out of shape, it was a bit difficult with LOTS of climbing up rocks, stones, roots, boulders, etc. I made it to the top and consider that quite an accomplishment for this newly retired person. Of course, it was encased in a cloud, but still, I'm glad I went. Sometimes the trail disappeared near the top...
