I really enjoyed this trail, however I would say it's a little harder than moderate. It's completely uphill for about 2.5 miles until the trails diverge. It's a great hike and an awesome workout, but be prepared for a serious incline.

Also, while I was hiking my car window got smashed and my purse was stolen from my backseat. So if you're in this area be sure to lock up your belongings so they are out of sight completely. My windows are even tinted so it's hard to see in my car at all, but the thief was persistent. Would definitely go back despite the theft, but would leave everything I wasn't hiking with at home.

Great hike for a couple or a family. The trail is easily marked, kid and dog friendly, and the majority of the trail is shaded. There are multiple hills on this hike (nothing too drastic) and the views are ah-mazing!! I went on this hike with a gentleman who knew the area which was perfect because he was able to show and explain to me the various landmarks. As a heads up, mountain bikers and runners also use this trail but they were very respectful and friendly. I will definitely be coming back and hiking this trail, and the other trails nearby, in the future!!
