Fun, but pretty tough trail. Definitely leans difficult over moderate, as there's a lot of uphill! It was pretty empty today given that it was drizzly and grey, but I'm glad it was cool because we were sweating! $7 park pass can be bought with a credit card at the visitor center. We added the out and back up to Windy Peak as well, some very pretty views! We'll definitely be back.

My suggestion for this Trail is it is not moderate. This is a pretty tough Trail and plan some time to do the whole thing so you can rest

We went early April and it was beautiful! Definitely make the trip up to Windy Peak, it was the highlight of the trail. No snow on the trail.

Nice little hike. Was able to take the kids. Our 5 year old enjoyed it and didn't really struggle. Some great views and nice little forest sections

Beautiful but high moderate hike. Would not recommend this hike for a beginner. Windy Peak is beautiful. Went on a cool September morning and saw only a few other people on the trail. The park is absolutely beautiful and I recommend it
