Good trail but muddy and a bit hard to follow. I’d say it’s more moderate than easy due to inclines and declines.

I would not call this trail easy by any stretch of the imagination! We hike often and this trail kicked our butt! There are frequent elevation changes, and with spring and mud upon us, making your way up and down the hills can me treacherous.

I enjoyed this trail and there were quite a few technical challenges, such as downed trees and streams to cross. Just please be careful with the muddy terrain. This trail will be easier in dry season, but still challenging.

Lovely. Muddy today but we only saw one person in five miles. Perfect for the dogs. Several stream crossings. Some good hills. Not for when the knees hurt.

I wouldn't call it easy! Definitely has some good hills!

Perkins is hardly an easy trail. The first hill is killer and there are some really good ones after that. If you are doing both trails, it's more than 4.1 miles. If you do both, it's nearly 7 miles! I've done both several times.
