Moderate climb. Perfect if you haven't been out in awhile.

Amazing! Gorgeous weather and such awesome sights. The trails are marked really well and well maintained.

Moderate trail difficulty, but was so crowded. Definitely a highly trafficked trail. Scenery was nice though.

Great trail with amazing views

Pretty easy hike. It's paved the whole way so it's not as challenging as a dirt trail. I wish it was more dirt, but the incline makes it more interesting. There are a few side paths that go up the hill and provide nice views! There is another path nearby that is further south and leads to another picnic area on top of a huge cliff. We'll be making another trip soon to find that path!

I would not classify this as an easy trail as it is all uphill and pretty steep. But the view once you're under the bridge is beautiful ❤

I only recorded the trail one way, from the Clementine Dam to the restrooms at the Confluence.

The trail is a road width dirt and rock most of the way, with a smaller portion of it rocky dirt trail width. Much of it has shade trees alongside.

Hike was very enjoyable. Lots of dogs and families hiking on the trail. Water is beautiful color with all the green background. Easy trail.

Great trail. Well maintained. Plenty of parking at trail head. We parked at Auburn staging area for access to the trail. Plenty of marking at the trail splits. The hike back up was a true workout. Especially when we saw the sign that it was 30 degree grade. Would definitely do this trail again.
