It a beautiful hike definitely hard. You go two miles up on the way back. We went with 7 and 10 year olds and they did better then me :) they are very athletic. I say I would prefer something shorter. Climbing up is not fun. Took us 3 hrs and 15 with stops for playing in the water.

Wonderful trail with varied scenery and lots of shade. Take a right when you get to the loop to make it easier - otherwise you'll be climbing steep rocky terrain on the way back. Highly recommend this trail!
