Really good trail! Only took us about 2 hours to do the whole thing. I didn't find it too challenging but I would not recommend this to anyone who can't handle hills or climbing rocks.

Challenging trail with beautiful views. Beautiful in the spring with all the waterfalls. Will definitely do it again maybe in tha fall with all the colours.

Challenging hike, summit is somewhat underwhelming, but the hike itself it's very nice.

Super great fall or spring trail. The summer it is super crowded! The spring is great because the falls are full of water. This summer they ran dry.

I would say it should be rated difficult. I would do it again fine. But I would say it could be dangerous for the older, super young and unfit.
Plus I'd recommend the hike in the Spring when there may actually be a waterfall.
The views are breathtaking and it is a fun hike.

I will rate it difficult for most part of the trail. Very good excercise!

It was a very intense early morning sprint to the top. The rugged paths are great but there are plenty of ways up to increase difficulty.
Once we reached the top we then ran to McKinstry and back before the rapid descension.

Anytime after 10 am is way too over populated for it to be fun for experts playing with the trail.
