Starts out mellow but would not rate this one as easy - Moderate at least. Definitely more of an adventure hike getting up top. Seasonal stream down some rocky parts made things interesting.

The snow was melting and created small rivers where the trail should be. This is a VERY difficult trail that is covered in many areas and not clearly marked. It is very steep and not accessible to dogs. Beware!
