closer to moderate than easy. some parts are quite steep, although the whole way is paved.

Beautiful trail! The wild flowers were breath taking! Couldn't believe how many there were for August!

Breathtaking views and thin air. Be careful as the fog and mist keep the trail covered in a thin layer of moss and algae. It can be extremely slippery in some spots. Stay on the trail!

Lively trail to say the least, very very heavily trafficked, clearly the main trail at the park. It is a paved trail (for 90% of the way) and is incredibly steep for a section. That being said it is a lovely hike, if you're looking for a short burst challenge, look no further. Fabulous hike, just keep in mind there will be hundreds of other hikers on this trail at any given time.

Great option instead of the main freeway out of Paradise (skyline trail) . . Dead Horse does intersect with the Skyline Trail at Glacier Vista. Dead Horse is a great little 2 mile hike unto itself . . The quieter side of Paradise.
