This is a beautiful short hike. I don't know if I would call it easy. There are parts that are straight up . 700 feet in elevation in .8 miles. On the top of the ridge there are boulders to climb. However, it was a very enjoyable two and half hour hike. Follow blue to yellow. The app helped me find the cut off to yellow. Easily missed.
