Really liked the lower section of the trail from Martin creek trailhead to the interpretative center.
The upper section was pretty brushy with not much to see.

Super easy, great for kids. Mostly flat with the exception of one part that is really steep switchbacks, those were a thigh burner. Beautiful views up top. Cool historical things to read and view.

I would rate this as a easy to moderate trail. Definitely some parts that would be challenging for a smaller kid. Be prepared for walking through over grown paths for several miles - like walking through jungle. Bugs and flies were heavy and a bit annoying. Very cool historical spot along the way.

My absolute favorite trail. Hiked this one a couple years back and have been itching to come back and hike it again.
