I'd consider this an easy hike rather than moderate.... saw deer, many hummingbirds, wildflowers & lots of Portable potties! Super fun :)

***Two Parking Lots!***
Don't accidentally park at the lot 1/4 mile from the base. Drive all the way to the main lot (unlike me ;) )
Other than that it's a good trail. Big climb either direction you go. Coming back in it's a steep decline. Lots of traffic which I like for safety and lots of eyes.
Happy trails!

Great trail loop. Heavily trafficked in the weekends so there's not as easy parking. Can be as challenging as you desire by increasing or decreasing pace.

Very nice trail, with breathtaking views! It's sometimes relatively steep, but the pathway is easy to walk on (large and without any obstacles).
However, watch out for the tarantulas and snakes, especially when it gets dark. Apparently, there are also tarantula wasps (whose sting is extremely painful) and mountain lions around there, but we didn't see any.
