Easy until you get to the actual lighthouse monument and have to climb up a little cliff. Took me 3 hours from start to finish. Make sure you take at least a gallon of water per person & equal per dog.

Easy and beautiful, gorgeous views. Took less than a hour when we hopped on from the GSL trail to head back to our car. Missed the actual lighthouse but we could see it from our trail. Definitely a good trail worth coming back to.

Mountain Bike enthusiasts will enjoy this trail, but bikers that are new to the sport or are unsure of their performance level might be hesitant early on in the trail as it gets a bit steep. There are back to back 1 ft drop offs like a staircase, sections for speed, and usually quite a few hikers, so be mindful and careful around blind turns. Fun trail with great views of part of the 2nd largest canyon in the U.S.!

It was a very beautiful and easy trail to do. I had a little bit of difficulty getting to the top cause of my fear of heights. I luckily have a bf who is not. We packed a lunch and stopped along the trail at one of the benches to eat. Perfect day for us!
