Hard? No. This is a really easy short hike anyone can do. Unless you're talking about the short steep decline from the top rim.

I park at Garnsey rd, head south. Have done the south portion 3 or 4 times in fall and winter, never the same route. Once went all the way to Moseley rd, past the Woodcliff hotel where there is a nice overlook / photo spot / helicopter pad (ok probably not but it looks like one). Good elevation change, will get the heart rate up if you keep up a good pace. Taking/harvesting a couple walking poles/sticks helps get the arms and back into the workout on the hills and helps with the occasional slippery spot. Expect to spot the occasional deer, and at least a few friendly fellow hikers. Yes you can hear I-490 from pretty much the entire trail but that also serves to establish your bearing if you need it. Not sure how to get out? just walk toward the road noise, or downhill (same result) and then go right and you'll end up back at the Garnsey rd trailhead. This is about the only trail I've found in the area with a good amount of up and down (a few in Powder Mill Park have steep hills but are smaller and shorter). All in all a nice 1 to 2 hour hike.
