I found the trail to be challenging with lots of rocky terrain. This was my first hike ever, but it was manageable. A previous commenter was very helpful in noting the simple directions of following the orange markers to ascend, continue to blue/yellow and then descend following white markers. The views were fantastic! great hike!
