Pretty solid. First portion (3/4 mile or so) was the most difficult/steep and had the best views. After that it levels out for the most part. At the end of Eagle Cliff you stay on Red Hill for a hundred feet or so until you hit the tower. Definitley climb up the tower and soak in the views.

For whatever reason the trail map on this site also has you do the entire Red Hill trail which is a waste of time. I'd recommend just taking Eagles Cliff back down as opposed to doing another out and back with Red Hill. There are no views and you just go straight to a parking lot.

So in reality if you do Eagles Cliff and only a hundred feet or so of Red Hill just to get to the tower the entire hike will be around 4 to 5 miles.

Overall I'd consider this a moderate hike as opposed to difficult.
