How can someone rate a 25.8 mile hike as easy? Christian must be saying this was an easy DRIVE in his jeep?

We took the drive up from Hite Marina on Lake Powell, its about 40 miles by 4wd jeep road to the start of the Flnt trail. The tail climbs as it follows the ridge line with an east facing overlook of the Canyonlands basin and the Maze district. It eventually turns into a series of switchbacks that head up to the Hans Flat area. The road gets rougher and turns into one lane as it heads to the top of the mesa, once on the top it's about 50miles of ranch roads to reach the exit onto Hwy 24 across from the entrance to Goblin Valley SP (Temple Mtn Rd).
