Slow gradual climb. Wouldn't rate it hard but rather moderate. Pretty views at the top!

Great workout. Hiked on 4/8/17. Top third of the trail was snow packed. Wear boots for sure, unless you're a maniac. Mostly wooded with some great views along the way.

Definitely a great workout for a hike! I went 4/7/2017. The first half of the trail (which is actually part of the meadowview and Elkridge trail) was dry. But due to the recent snowfall the second half of it was muddy and got progressively snowier. Very glad I wore my winter boots for the hike! It's a steady incline to the top. Most of the mountain views are covered by trees until you reach the top. Moderate amount of shade especially through the switchbacks. I would do this trail again (hopefully with less snow/mud).
