HARD- I feel this hike should be rated hard for these reasons: this is a close to 2 hr hike and the inclines are pretty steep (especially for beginners). If you work out consistently I could see rating this moderate, but for the people not from this area (I’m from Indiana) and for people who don’t work out regularly or only walk for exercise a couple of days a week, THIS IS A HARD HIKE! Now for the positive aspects...this is a beautiful hike. Once you get to the top and walking down, it is stunning to look over the city. Lots of areas to take breaks and take photos.

Amazing ride super technical and a lot of Climbs

Kinda boring.
