This was an enjoyable hike with well developed paths and peaceful surroundings. If you love trees, you’re in for a treat because the trail lives up to the namesake of Forest Park. If you’re looking for a view beyond that? I would suggest another trail. As far as difficulty, it is much more moderate than it is hard. Nothing too extraneous and very level for at least half of the trail (specifically on the Fire Lanes). Great for trail running but I was out there to get accustomed to new hiking boots.
