We would not call this hard, moderate. Although is says best from March to Oct we went Jan 1 and it was great. It would be awesome during wild flower blooming time.

This is a great trail for running! Aim for fall or spring to really enjoy it without the heat. Start at the trailhead by the campgrounds for a full 5 mi!

This trail was a bit challenging for somebody who hasn't hiked in years, but very doable. The views we breathtaking. I loved standing high on the hills looking around at the mountains surrounding me near and far.

It was windy and cold, we could only saunter as far as we could, which was about a mile overall. I'd taken some friends on this little hike, they'd just flown in the night before from Florida. An amazing trail I'm going to return to.
