This is hardly a "hard" trail. Moderate in spots, maybe. You can go end to end in an afternoon--best to have 2 cars and park one at the end point and leave the other at your entry point if you don't want to retrace your steps (*then* it might be hard, but only in terms of distance). This is a single track dirt trail that mostly follows the Grand River with several access points to the river, which is great if you have dogs with you. The entry point from Oak Park Road (or whatever that road off Oak Park is called) is usually busy because it's also the access point for that end of the SC Johnson bike trail, but you catch this trail right after going over the Hwy 403 pedestrian bridge (watch for it on the right) and then there are few people as it is pretty hilly at points and the single track can sometimes get narrow. But lots of flat stretches too. The other end connects with the SC Johnson bike path but if you cross that, the single track dirt trail continues over some pretty extreme hills for maybe another 2 km and exits at Hardy Road. My sister and I regularly hike this trail with our dogs in the summer. Very nice trail for a half-day hike.
