This trail was fun however it was much easier than a moderate trail should be. I would consider this trail easy for experienced hikers.

The fam (wife, 12 y/o, 8 y/o) and I hiked trail 2 which is 5.1 mi. Im not in good shape and it was a piece of cake, I would almost classify this as easy. I wanted to do trail 3 also which adds a few more miles, but the fam werent feeling it. About half way, they were dragging ass, so I made some corn pancakes on the emberlit stove and I couldnt believe how much better everyones mood was on the way out!

Nice trail. Not steep. Group of seven of us went out on the 2.1 mile loop using the Trail 2 shortcut. It was perfect morning activity.
