Took my family(17, 16, 13 and 10 yo + 40lb dog) this afternoon. Spent a total of 3 hours with a few river breaks. It was warm but breezy. Bring bandanas and throw them in the river; they feel awesome on your neck while hiking. I would rate sections of it as easy(from TH to split about .75 miles in)but it definitely gets harder in places along the ridge as the trail gets narrower with crushed granite as the only footing with steep drops toward the river.
