definitely more easy than moderate. the 5 miles really just fly by because the trail is flat and there are lots of things to look at. the waterfall is beautiful! once you reach it, you can continue on to mt rose (another 5 miles total) or turn around and head back. there are a lot of people on the trail, but i wouldn't call it crowded--if you like your solitude i would recommend starting around 7 or 8am; if you like saying hi to people on the trail then start later. there was a nice breeze so we didn't notice the heat even though we got a later start.
