I'd give it about 4.5 stars. The trail as shown is a straight climb up a pretty dull dry grass-filled trail (at least in late summer), with some splashes of sunflowers here and there. You can tell that a fire went through here maybe 3-4 years ago (?) from the growth in the base of many of the burned tree skeletons. It's a constant slow climb, and I'd actually rate it as Hard for some, but maybe it's listed as Moderate because it's not a very long trail? It's probably a bit popular because of that, so expect to see folks doing their workout climbs. You can go on the switchback slowly (although it's still steep, relatively speaking), or go for a harder workout by taking the shortcuts that you will constantly see peppered through the hike. These go through the dry grasses, and look well worn through. Once I got to the end of the listed trail, I kept going on the De Campos trail, up to the Sunshine Canyon Motorway, and halfway up the East Canyon Motorway. That makes for a good 4-5 mile (?) hike each way, and it's pretty nice and scenic and quiet up there. Quiet enough to see a condor fly close by, and only passed 2 folks up in those parts. There are quite a few gnat-like bugs that are annoying, so some bug repellent probably isn't a bad idea.

Beautiful as always; this is my usual training sandbox. Today, I sadly encountered some deer and one of the fawns got stuck trying to run through an iron fire road gate. It was injured but thank goodness it managed tree itself and get through. Happy ending.

Grotto trail is Very steep. No shade on the entire hike. Bring lots of water. Mixture of people wear masks. A lot of people play their music very loud, not turning it down when other people are around. Great exercise.
