excellent trail for beginners to intermediates. there are some hills but nothing challenging for families with small kids. Those with tots may find it a bit more difficult. I only went during the winter and there was a fresh blanket of light fluffy snow. I was carrying my two year old in a child carrying backpack. by the end of the hour we were out there I was tired and legs were feeling quite jelly-ish. I highly recommend this trail. I will be back during all season.
