I would say this trail is more intermediate - rocky at times but relatively moderate. I encountered two snakes, one being a rattlesnake, as well as a peasant family. Little to no traffic and partial shade with a great view at the top of the rock!

I took Howard's trail on the way up and Arthur's rock down. At the trailhead you take the trail that heads south (slight left) into the valley and just slight right the whole way. I'm Thankful it was a cooler day with clouds and a breeze. You are mostly exposed with some trees here and there and about .7 miles through a forestry area. Lots of wildflowers but nothing too special about the trail other than that. Still a nice little weekend hike/workout but not one of my faves.
