This is a good little hike. It is pretty rocky and not well marked in places, but I just follow the AllTrails map and never got lost. Has some good inclines and declines but not too strenuous. I would say is more towards moderate, I am somewhat fit but felt it was a good workout. It is very narrow in a lot of spots where it only fits 1 person. Took me about an hour. I would do it again for exercise; it’s not the most scenic if that is what you are looking for.

Mostly flat with a couple good climbs! Enjoyed this hike! I would agree that it is poorly marked! The app kept me on track!

I started off the 28th str trailhead. I thought the trail was easy to follow. Rocky throughout with a couple good climbs.

Very hard to follow the trail, we went off track a few times because it’s not marked at all.

Lots of loose rock and quite hard to keep on the trail with so many split-offs. Using the app helped a lot!
