Great views and it's not too bad. There is one particularly challenging (some I was hiking with found it scary) spot you'll encounter, but it's really the only part that is _that_ challenging. That part probably gave it the 'hard' rating.

Lost the trail on slim shady. There is a spur that I got turned around - but wasn't that hard to reorient myself.

Wow. This is one of the easiest hikes I have ever been on. Super duper easy 10 miles. It would've been challenging on a mtb just because of the sheer dropoffs on the slim shady portion of the trail but in terms of hiking this trail is not challenging whatsoever. Also, there's a TON of traffic noise for 90% of the hike and in the first half there's tons of people and children. Not a good hike if you're looking for something peaceful and challenging. The best thing about this hike were the BEAUTIFUL views on the Slim Shady portion.

This is an extremely technical trail. I would call it mountain bike tip toeing at best. Don't expect to get any speed or Momentum. Both up and downhill are very challenging. I am fairly experienced and I had to walk a good third of the trail.

Mildly difficult with very rewarding views on both sides of Cathedral Rock. Move over for the bikers.
