I am a beginning hiker and wouldn’t rate this as hard at all. It is rolling hills, but it doesn’t have any crazy ascents like pretty much every other hike in the Sierras. It gave me the confidence I needed to start going on more ambitious day hikes and is absolutely stunning in wildflower season (April 2018 in my case). I recommended it for beginners just starting out with dayhiking, but wear a hat and sunscreen up, because it’s very sunny!
