Challenging in some spots but don't turn around to head back...keep up and you will be amazed at the summit look-outs.

Easy but challenging in some spots! The view is worth it.

Certainly beautiful views at the top. Totally worth it but I disagreed with the easy rating. It was an uphill climb all the way. Granted we are not seasoned hikers - that's why we choose 'easy'. I definitely recommend but know you will be working it. It's paved all the way, lots of other hikers along the way and facilities at the top. Absolutely worth the effort.

This trail is Easy for a hiker. Non hikers not so much I took my mom on a mini getaway and we did this. It was her first hike. She is in her 60s. Not very athletic It was a bit tough for her due to the constant uphill incline. Lots of steps and some rocks. For the non hiker I would recommend walking the gravel path for cars. Or driving. :). Mom did it and was so proud. Took several breaks but she says the view at the top was so worth it. The smile on her face was priceless :)
