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 :)
