I don’t know who labeled this easy, but I would list it as moderate to hard. If you go right on the blue trail, you’ll go up two steep, rocky inclines. You never have to scale or anything, but the inclines are steep for a good mile or so. The views were worth it though. The walk down is much easier. I haven’t gone all the way around, I’ve cut across the green trail, which cuts about 3 miles out. There were a few boggy patches, but the trail showed recent signs of tree cutting and such, although some areas the brush was so tight to the trails it felt like a chute.

I love this trail. I usually go blue to yellow to white. Nice 7 mile loop with decent climbs and a nice simple walkout at the end. It is also very lightly trafficked, so if you want a little peace and quiet this is a great choice.
