I would rate this route as a moderate one. I hiked this trail with two other ladies. We started at Parktrail trailhead and went onto Canyon Trail, around Lake Ijsanjo and down Spring Creek Trail.The weather was perfect for today's hike - cool with a little fog. We were fortunate to see many does and bucks out early. Clearly mating season has begun. It took us a little less than two hours to do the hike - about 2 to 3 miles an hour. Great workout.
