I wouldn't consider this hard, perhaps a bit above moderate. From what I remember, the trail is a bit overgrown at points. But nothing exceptionally difficult, decent view at the top.

great views from the needle. cool track, lots of roots to climb up. steep steep and would be super slippery with any rain. loved it. make sure the waterfall is flowing to jump in at the end and do it from north to south
