As a 73 year old my perspective may be different, but I can't rate a trail as moderate that requires a prolonged climb over rocks. We chose to walk down by the road from the ridge rather than descend down that steep rocky area. I would consider it moderate if there were places where you needed to climb or scramble but they were broken up by level areas or at least areas where I could stay upright for long enough to get my bearings. I am relatively fit for my age and exertion is not the issue. The trail is well marked, and the view is lovely. But I suggest older hikers give serious thought to just driving the road to the lookout, and finding another trail!
