It says moderate, however if you are not used to the altitude this can be a challenge. The trail starts going up from the trail head and does not change until you crest. Exceptional views and a great trail

Really neat trail - a good amount of elevation gain, switchbacks, dirt and boulders. There are a couple sections where it's not immediately obvious where the trail goes, but it's relatively easy to figure out.
