Alltrails has this listed as an easy trail. I would say it's at least moderate. The high elevation and distance are a challenge. It's a beautiful hike and definitely worth the trip.

Moderate. Not easy. Brought water filter and filled up on creek at about mile 3. Beautiful views

Gorgeous trail in the spring/early summer. Hiked it in late June and there were two small creeks that crossed the path. My family (including two 12 year olds) have hiked it twice and plan on hiking it again.

You can tell by elevation gain (3200 feet) that is a pretty good hike. Great views on top.

I would say this hike is a moderate uphill climb. Pleasant does not accurately describe the climb, but does describe the views. Snow in early summer makes summiting a challenge.

Beware of Sasquatch.

Nice training hike. Starts at trailhead behind Rock Creek Resort. It's mostly in the trees with no views for several miles. At the top the trail follows huge cairns across the plateau. Great views from that point.
