Took my two kids (4&8) it was a good beginning how to see how they would do on longer more challenging hikes later. Gradual rise and fall in elevation, nothing extreme. Lots rock in about half the path. Definitely worth it to go past the trail end and see the overlook.
No cover entire trail.

A snow and ice storm had just past and the area was mostly empty. Plenty of wildlife around. A very easy hike even in the conditions. I averaged over 3mph. Nice area so close to the metro.

Nice walk. Be prepared for no shade. Early morning is best. Lots of rocks on trail so have good shoes.
