I did this hike a while back in 2016. Loved the scenery, a decked out pond at beginning with a small shaded river running through bottom of mountain. The climb gets real so I just went from the bottom to the top where it comes out on River Pace Blvd.

Narrow trail with lots of up and down steps. It can get pretty busy on the weekends, but some nice views and some wet weather creeks. The creeks were dry when we went today, but it was still a nice trail. Lots of people brought their dogs on leashes. I wouldn't classify this trail as "easy" either. This should be a "moderate" at least. It is a good workout though for a short trail.
