I did this with my 11 year old daughter and we found it relatively easy... but definitely fun and one we would do again!

While site lists it as wheelchair friendly, this trail is not accessible to wheelchairs or any wheeled vehicles. total waste of time to drive 1+ hour up there to find it was unusable. first use of this site was a total bust. :((

Great place for a short hike. The bald rock face the park is named for has a great view, and depending on the direction you choose on the trail, can be a good indurance training spot.
