This was a pretty, shaded trail. It most definitely is NOT a difficult hike--maybe moderate difficulty at best (worst?). Either way, I do highly recommend this, but it's important to mention that this area is really used by Portola Valley residents and so there's really no place for plebeians to park. Having said that, it's scarcely hiked and the few folks we saw on the hike were very friendly. :)
