well marked trail. It's a little steep on the upper part where joins the Crest trail # 25, but nothing outrageous. Will hike again.

This was a great moderate hike with beautiful scenery. I loved following the creek and hearing the water. We did not do the loop but chose to hike in for over an hour and turn around. It's been one of my favorite hikes over all.

We just hiked a mile in (had a 4 year old with me), but it was absolutely gorgeous! Well marked trail, lush forests with no burn sections, several scenic creek crossings, and two abandoned mine shafts! Towards the one mile mark it starts getting steep, so it is probably a moderate trail overall, but if you're looking for an easy family hike, the first mile of Turkey Canyon is where it's at!
