I would call this one easy, more than moderate. Most of the elevation gain is at the end. We stayed out a little late and as the sun went down the coyotes got active. Got a little dicey out with my dog. Lots of vocalizations and only 40-50 yards from the trail. Be watchful of your fur pals as it gets late.

Pretty straight forward. Well maintained. A beginners trail for sure.

Great hike, we hiked to the summit, and I saw a GREAT view. I would go again, absolutely.

Large trailhead parking area. Trail was in excellent condition, wide with crushed gravel the entire way up. Moderately used trail. Excellent views of the Tri-Cities with stone benches at the top. Keep your eye out for snakes! I saw a large snake about 3 feet long crossing the trail (not a rattlesnake).

This is a well taken care of path and a great hike for families! I took our 6 kiddos today ( ages 13,11,9,6,5 and 3) all walked except the 3 year old I carried on my back! They all did great! My younger ones were tired by the top( it was a very windy day today too) but they were so proud they made it! Going down was a breeze!
