The first 1.5 mikes are moderate. The rest is too difficult to be called moderate. The climb is quite steep at 15% and the descent is straight down the face at 20% on loose rock. The trail is very exposed after 9:00 am.

To be clear- Red Butte Garden is a fenced-in 100 acre botanical garden located in the area of the Red Butte Canyon Trails. There is an entrance fee and only service animals are allowed inside the Garden. Some of the walking paths are paved and are wheelchair accessible. No bikes. The trails depicted as "Red Butte Garden Trails" on this website are located all around Red Butte Garden, but not inside.
