Finished in 2 hours. Great quick hike. I went up the steep way first, and I didn't find it to be as terrible as it sounds. It's steep for sure but before you know it you're at the top. I went early morning to beat the crowd and heat. Wear good shoes bc it's loose gravel and sand. And lots of water. Beautiful. And then you go down and have a flat easy trail to cool down on.

Amazing scenery! Beautiful rock formations and the river is refreshing. The first part of misery ridge trail is pretty intense and personally I would not rate that part of the hike as "moderate", but "semi difficult". The good news is that if that is too difficult, you have other options. The river trail is very scenic and you get many opportunities to see people rock climbing. Because the trail going downhill can have a tendency to be loose gravel and you lose your footing, I suggest you were a good hiking boots, and a walking stick is also a good aide. The bathroom facilities, water fountain, and information hut are all first class. I definitely plan on going again.
