I wouldn't label this trail as "easy," but maybe "moderate." Although most of it is paved, there are some good climbs, nice views, and interesting rock formations. Very well maintained. Not spectacular, but still a solid hour well spent!

Definitely challenging with elevation gains. We ended up veering off Lime Kiln to take Trail Among The Trees and then to Rock Quarry and back again. Both are pretty scenic, though Lime Kiln is more challenging. Would visit again. Lots of downed and dead trees in some spots, with just a few parts of the trail blocked by such (but still navigable). Part of a bridge is out on Trail Among the Trees so there is a detour around it, though we ended up going that way anyway and climbing up the side. We went on a week day and there was little to no other hikers there.

short loop, it made it more interesting because there was a bridge out and helped reduce the traffic but still more people enjoying the day on the trails than I like.

Easy enough for small kids, but moderate enough to keep it interesting for teens and adults. Beautiful cliffs, ravines and boulders.

Bridge is still out but it's still doable. Good trail for newbies and families. Lots of interesting fauna & flora too if you're paying attention.
