Fun hike.
A lot of the trail is in the shade with a little waterfall at the end.

Should be rated as a moderate hike due to its gradual steady incline but not at all hard.

Definitely not hard. But moderate and fun! Good views from the top!

how is this rated as hard? the steepest part is the 500 feet leaving the parking lot.
