3/20/17- Definitely easy/moderate, more traffic on trail than expected for a Monday, got pretty hot on the Meadowlark path as it's not well covered but the more difficult path (Clear creek?) offered great shade. A park ranger told me the hike is "known to kill dogs" due to dehydration, however my dachshund loved it and is still kickin' just don't forget to bring water for your pooch:)
Nice, moderate trail. It was in the 60s-70s today so the first hour was a little warm. Other than that, nice trail. I took my dog and he loved it.
