With the return of the Heat and Humidity it's back to hiking early in the morning or late in the evening. It's becoming hard to beat the heat so I recommend a dip in the stream if you need to cool off. With the parks closing at 7:25 PM. your evening trip is becoming limited because you are still hiking in the heat. I think they should open the park gates earlier this time of year. Opening at 9:00 AM. makes no sense because after two or three hours you will be frying. This is probably another reason why many people prefer to park outside the gates or simply hike a different area like Daniel's instead. Seniors like me have all the time in the world but people getting off work are screwed. Now they will have to make up the time on weekends.

Not sure about the easy rating. Someone like myself who is out of shape found the hill back up a little tough. I may have come back up on a different trail though. Lol. Cool trail though. Water is awesome and the railroad tracks are cool.
