I definitely wouldn't rate this as "hard." I would go more along the lines of "easy" to "moderate." There is nothing wrong with the trail, it's just an average trail. The final destination being driveable kind of ruins it since it adds a lot more people at the top.

This trail is perfect for me, it has gorgeous views, it’s hard but not hard enough to keep you out of breath the whole time like Piestewa Peak. You get that accomplished feeling when you reach the lookout AND you get to enjoy the experience of the look out while you rest up! My favorite part is probably how few people were on the trail, the only crowded part was at the top.
