Not exactly easy. Pretty steep for the kids with some drops on the edge of the trail.

I'm not sure where the track on the map goes to as it shows stopping 2/3 of the way up the ridge. The trail I followed was up the bottom of the drainage and I followed it to about the 7200 foot level and couldn't take any more. Nothing to look at but dense forest, which is fine but I prefer trails that have better views. Maybe if I had continued on to gain the ridge above the road to the tower it might have been worth the effort.

The trail is well shaded in the summer so it is a decent place to get some exercise on a hot day.
