AllTrails lists this as an easy hike but I'd call this moderate because it's got at least two steep hills. The views are nice once you're up nice and high but not spectacular. It's a pretty combination of woods and prairie and is a nice little workout. Very enjoyable.

Always a fun climb up the little cliff covered with blanket of pine needles with a view out over the lake.

The Stephens Falls trail intersects with this trail. If you do them together it will be a little more than four miles. Easy hiking. Lost Canyon Trail is a mowed path for 3/4 of the way, then a well-trodden dirt path the rest of the way. Stephens Falls is the highlight. This is a large park , centered around the two lakes. After hiking, we rented a paddleboat and worked our way across the Cox Hollow lake.
