Should be rated hard as it is very challenging in my opinion. Great views along the way and make sure to hike all the way to Rattlesnake Cliff (ok after August 1st as Peregrine falcon restrictions lifted) for great view of Lake Dunmore and Green Mountain ranges. Stunning

Trail was pretty, but the rattlesnake trail wasn't very well maintained. The cliffs are closed between April 15th and August 1st, so there's no view of the lake

Went yesterday with 2 friends. The views from Rattlesnake Cliffs are fantastic, but keep in mind that to reach Rattlesnake Cliffs, the trail goes beyond what is shown on the AllTrails map, There are 2 places to get views from the top. There is a trail off to the left as you walk up that is labeled "vista" that is one of the spots. The other one is available if you continue straight for a short distance. Check out both, as they offer views in different directions.

FYI - Rattlesnake Cliffs are closed for the peregrine falcon nesting season, so be sure to visit after August 1.
