ok...as said read the good reviews...this is not a moderate trail in my opinion..maybe if you take the 1.8 mile trail flat as can be to start and then blend it with the 2.0 mile staircase you get moderate but I felt it was more to the hard..in any case most importantly do not attempt on a wet day or a day after a wet day..was very slippery a day after a drizzle...rocks were flat in areas and there was no traction..you could see where people were trying to create another trail in the dirt. the views were nice workout great...I was the only one up and down that day. saw a beautiful milk snake which I posted...all in all a good trail just listen to the advise on the other reviews...I did and was prepaid because of it...enjoy if you are thinking about doing after all you are in paradise....
