This is my first summit since moving back to Scottdale. I see that most people call this moderate and I'd agree up to the last 10th of a mile. The last 10th is not hard up but takes balance or care coming down. I'm 66 and made it just fine but it made me realize I am not as agile or balanced as I was at 46 or even 56. I was looking for rocks to hold onto to get back down from the summit. Great views though and the rest of the trail is easy.
