The AHA recommends 30 minutes of moderate activity a day, and you should get 20-30 minutes of sunshine per day, this trail does it both. Great little loop trail. Steady incline to the loop itself, this part is shaded by the trees. The loop gets more direct sunshine on the west side. Some tree obscured city views on the east side. Poison oak just off the trail bilaterally, keep this is mind if you plan to cuddle with your fur babies after the hike. Overall a great little hike.

This is a great easy hike to do with kids. The first part is a little steep for kiddos that was encouragement they can handle it with no problem :-) Well maintained trail with lots of options to go further. We had a dog with us and there’s a few parts where meeting other dogs on the trail it was a little hard to step off but not a big deal, just something to be aware of if your dog is not friendly.

This the first time I’ve used this app. I thought I was recording, and wasn’t until about 1/2 way in. 47° today. Great trail, my dog loved it. There were a few steep hills but overall a great hike.

Great local trail near downtown. lots of trees, decent valley views of Grant's Pass. Trail markers keep you going along your desired path as other trails intercept and cross this trail.

The trail winds through tall Manzanita and Madrone trees and had some beautiful views of the surrounding mountain ranges. It's a perfect trail to stretch your legs and get a nature fix especially if you are short on time.

I felt this would be better rated moderate. I went in June and it was dry and not too attractive. Perhaps in another season it would be prettier.

This is a great trail for an easy walk/hike. There are beautiful wild flowers and it’s a very dog friendly trail! There are some muddy parts but not bad at all considering it was raining earlier in the day .

Loved the trail but agreed getting to the trail is difficult terrain but the Sky Crest loop not hard. Trail does drop off the sides so make sure the group has safety awareness.

So this is rated as easy but I would say it’s more of a moderate but short trail. It’s right near the cathedral trails. I think it’s actually part of it. But the easy rated trails on Cathedral Hills much easier.
