Pretty overgrown, but very quiet. Steep in some parts, but not overly challenging. Fun to see some very old creepy abandoned cars on the way. The view was great, wish we would have gone earlier in the day to appreciate it longer. Bring bug spray!

Hiking Mt. Josephine should not be rated "moderate"; I agree w/Best North Shore's rating & description:
"This rough and challenging trail has the steepest climb—and the most dramatic view—on the North Shore.
Difficulty: difficult. Best for experienced hikers with stamina and the ability to route-find on unmaintained trails. The trail climbs 600 feet in just over a half mile—perhaps the steepest climb on the North Shore.
Trailhead facilities: none"
