Moderate grade, excellent views to Table Rock & Caesars Head. This hike was a great little surprise. The trail is great for all ages and the views are excellent from the granite outlook. You can park at the trailhead or drive all the way to the top and walk down the trail to the lookout. Take the longer route, the trail is worth it.

It was a great hike with my wife and two small children. It was very scenic and the fall weather made for comfortable conditions.

Took a group of senior citizens bc the difficulty level was said to be easy/moderate. The trail had a lot of steep switchbacks down to the beautiful view but it was just very difficult for these independent seniors. Grant it, the view was beautiful, but there was quite a few of us who got tons of chigger bites afterwards.
