This was a really pretty trail. Moderate is correct, would not be good for younger kids, but tweens and up can handle it. We only saw one other couple on the trail. My suggestion would be to wear pants, not shorts and hiking boots. The trails are a little overgrown, and there are a lot of spider webs.

A lovely river-side walk with some interesting rock formations. A few parts where you need to scramble, but nothing too tricky. The description is a little confusing- it's close to McLean Virginia, not Glen Echo.
