Great trail but the 2nd half should be rated difficult. Very steep in most places and very loose footing. With that said, it's worth the pain. Be careful on the way down as the footing is loose and trees have cut off branches that can puncture if you aren't careful.

This is a great trail; however, the rating is a bit misleading. It’s rated as moderate, but I would say this is only true for the first half. The second half is much more difficult. The trail approaching the summit is harder to see, is definitely less trafficked, and in parts is rather steep. Still a good hike with nice views.
