Was in Boy Scouts loved doing this trail always was very pleasant.

That initial climb up to the top is pretty tough, but certainly possible! The view is more than worth it once you get up there. The rest of the trail north is pretty flat and boring, so i'd just go see the amazing cliffs and maybe walk an extra mile if you're feeling it.
