I would rate this one more on the difficult side than moderate. PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOGS PEOPLE and don't leave the little blue baggies on the trail!

Nice hike, easier side of moderate with some elevation. Distance that can be extended onto other trails easily. Area and park in general are nice with a decent amount of parking options at no fee. Overall rocky trail. Not the slippery small ones, but the ones that are just big enough to be able to turn an ankle and make your feet hurt a little. Worth noting, but nothing that should deter you. Wear comfortable shoes. Took dogs and they did well, no cholla issues. I always get a bit nervous about their pads putting them on that rocky of trail but we went slow and steady and they did fine.

Good distance, good trail to get the heart rate up. Loose rock, so watch your footing. As always, take plenty of water. About 4.3 miles. Some stairs.

Fun to go if you have your kids or pets. Extremely easy and not challenging, but that works sometimes!

Nice trail, watch your ankles. A lot of loose rocks. This is perfect for all skill levels. You can run it, take a pack or just for a nice walk. Right now in March it's green with blooming flowers and great views. A little busy with the great weather till it gets hotter then hardly anyone on the trail.
