I really enjoyed this Trail. It's mostly shaded 85 to 90%. That's huge for people like me that are easily overheated. I take the dean's Trail first which is about 2.2 miles where you climb the elevation. I would consider it moderate if you're going to try and do it without stopping. once you get to the peak it's a very nice downhill 2.3 mile Trail that you can walk relaxing or run. Towards the very end it goes back to an incline to get to the parking lot that's where I usually just use it as my cool down period. the only thing about this trail that is a negative is that there's very little to no flowers or bloomage or anything other than the color green; and no water brook, etc. but it's one of my favorite trails to go to and it's only $6 to park.
