Absolutely beautiful and great for dogs! Due to the steep terrain, It isn't heavily trafficked, and you hike through several distinctly different microclimates. I would not rate it as hard. I think it should be rated as moderate.

Really loved the hike! Lots of shade so great for a hit day. And views of the city were spectacular!

It's a boring trail but great workout. As you're going up you're facing away from the water so you don't get nice views going up. Going down you get a bit more views but not that many. There isn't a lot of shade so if it's hot bring lots of water. I wouldn't rate this as difficult, it's a moderate hike.

Beautiful views. Quiet.
