For hikers I'd say this is easy. My wife, who's not really into hiking, and 7 year old daughter were able to do this trail in about an hour. We took a few breaks going up and didn't rush it. It is almost entirely uphill, so if you're not in decent shape take your time. Take breaks on the benches, bring plenty of water and the view will be so worth it.

I would not call this easy. A hike I can take my mom in is easy. She would never go for this. moderate switchbacks. Good hike. Don't stop at the platform. Go to into the Rocks and the views are stunning. Best foliage is between October 7-15th depending on the year. This is a must see.

Excellent views from the bottom and the top! A great family hike. Easy to get up this well-groomed trail.

A vigorous climb to the top but so worth the view! Bring water on a hot day. Not easy but a moderate hike.

Very nice trail easy to walk. Beautiful view from top platform but 100% nicer view just up past the platform.

Trail was socked in all day. Heavy rain coming down the mountain. I still enjoyed the hike, even though there were no views.
