Once you get off the road, it's not too shabby. It's not too challenging though, I wouldn't say moderate, but it will get your HR up!

Went on a chilly, wet, April day. The giant steps were a good workout but a bit slippery. Beautiful view of New Haven.

Views are amazing though you basically hike up along the road the whole time, when I go for a hike I like to be out in the wilderness not seeing a bunch of cars
