This is an easy trail which also happens to be a segment of the PCT. At the bottom of this trail segment is a falls in the creek that trickles even during the summer in drought years. It is a good place to replenish water if you have a filter. The Cooper Canyon Trail camp is well equipped with pit toilets, picnic tables and stoves. To get down to the falls involves a scramble down the bank with the assistance of an existing rope. A fit person could probably do it without the rope, but some may not be able to do it even with the rope, especially if you have a fear of falling. I did this trail as a Boy Scout backpacking weekend. We also saw families with young children. Its a good easy route.
