Not easy at all, at least moderate. You have to walk at least half a mile if not more to reach the bank then have to walk through the canyon walking over rocks of all shapes and sizes, at one point having to scramble down a group of very large boulder-like rocks. There is no hard ground at all in the canyon, it's either rocks or sand or silt making walking extremely difficult. At the end their is a steep embankment where you can slide down and continue on for a little bit but be warned, you'll have difficulty getting back up, because it's a hill of sand and silt, without help so I recommend not doing it alone. Went when it was overcast and cool and still sweated like it was 100 degrees out. Did not enjoy it at all.
