Not hard at all! Good distance and moderate incline but not too steep at all. We were a group of 5 (one of which had never hiked before. My friends 18 year old daughter) she had to take a few breaks but all in all great hike! Got lucky and had some rain yesterday so all the waterfalls/streams were running nicely. Didn’t get a lot of shade though...make sure you bring sunscreen! :)
