I enjoy this trail a lot. A little steep if you're a little out of shape but still doable. First time I did this hike was in the 80's with Cub Scouts. I've done it many times since. Recently at least once every or every other year. It never gets old.

At first, the trail is easy, then there is a moderate ascent, and it is steep at the very end. Overall, not too hard, and there are great views at the overlook.
