Great hike! Recommend traversing clockwise taking the upper around to lower! Not for the inexperienced or young children! Moderately difficult trail! Awesome vista and due to recent rainfall lots of water and waterfalls! 1 1/2 to 2 hour round trip!

One of my favorites at world's end. the mileage isn't bad and there is some fun rock formations, some scramble areas but very enjoyable.

Definitely not an easy trail depending on your experience. This was more like moderate trail for my family. We were advised to take the Upper Rd to go up and Lower to come down. Glad we did. Just slow and steady with lots of water to get to the Vista and slow and careful for the various terrains for the descent. We enjoyed this hike.

The last half of the trail is walking through a rock path and fairly steep with a couple switchbacks. A bit of a workout.

I just completed this trail after doing High Rock. I would not have rated this easy/moderate but moderate/difficult since after taking the upper road you find yourself going down the mountain over rock covered trails and paths no more the 2' wide with a steep slope on the one side in a lot of spots. Each trail is certainly a great workout!
