Trail listed as Moderate on the ZNP maps. I love this hike - and tried it as a trail run (which mostly worked) in the late afternoon, while the trail was fairly abandoned. Excellent views...and just like many other hikes in ZNP, there is so much changing rock and scenery. I love this hike and will add it to my list to repeat in the future.
