Not necessarily easy, but not much harder than easy. :) Nice lookout at the end. Not as crowded as the other trails.

Enjoyable trail through the sloping wooded hillside. I completed the loop clockwise, starting from the trailhead at the end of the parking area by the visitor center. There are some very interesting boulder formations along the way. The view at Listening Rock was more limited than I expected...but the view at Buzzard Rock Overlook (near the start/end of the trail) is very nice.

Lovely trail! Not sure why it's rated as difficult, the only somewhat difficult part is the extended incline towards the end of the trail. Views were incredible!

Excellent trail to warm up on, don't know who rated this trail as difficult, if call it moderate. Amazing view at Buzzard Rock, lots of very cool rock out croppings. Really enjoyed this trail.

Great views available. Multiple opportunities for rock scrambling and bouldering. Some weed overgrowth but not to bad.
