Great hike. Very few people using the trail. I would not rate this as difficult. Nice uphill hike not too steep. Great views.

Nice hike. Loved it. The first half mile has this beautiful eucalyptus trees. Early morning fog + the fragrance of eucalyptus was refreshing. It’s a steady climb but I wouldn’t classify it as hard.
