It was an absolutely beautiful day to take this hike with my husband and our 12 year old daughter. I’m leaning towards saying it’s a bit more than moderate but that’s coming from being a year out of a total knee replacement. The tributes to the fallen hero’s along the trail are beautifully written. At the observation area the view of the fatality site and the memorial wall with the patch’s left by other FDs and PDs from all over the country was very moving . But , we strongly recommend if you have the time make the hike down to the fatality site. It’s so powerful to stand and take in the memorial to those brave men and see the terrain that surrounded them.
