There is nothing moderate about this trail IF you hike regularly. It is touristy so perhaps the moderate label is applied using non-hikers as a baseline.

Decent hiking. Fairly easy. Even the trails labeled difficult weren't that challenging. We hiked most of the trails in Red Rock Canyon Open Space in one afternoon.

great area to explore, can be crowded on the weekends, bring water!

Trials were nice, a lot of rock climbers as well as easier climbs for the little ones. Very crowded so if your looking to feel alone and a little lost this would be ideal. Very family friendly however for those looking for an easy fun hike with their children or pups.

Good hike in an open space. Lots of loose granite so wear good shoes.

Nice trail. Scenic. Lots of horse poop though.
