Change in elevation might be low, but not as easy as I would have thought. Not bad, a good moderate trial with wonderful views. Just surprised how much garbage people leave throughout the park :(

This was more strenuous than I thought considering it has only +500 elevation. But it has very nice views through the River trail.
First 2.5 miles (river and ridge trail) is great workout and the other half(old carriage trail) is good cool down.
Overall great experience.
