I would not say it deserves a rating of difficult at all. However it is a great family hike the everyone could enjoy. It starts off walking down next to a lake and into the woods, the continues inward until you reach a large hill/cliff side. You will hike up the right of it and find yourself at the top of the mountain. The views are good not great, for the work you put in the view is worth it. Large sitting area on a flat rock at the top to sit and maybe eat. I’ve done the hike about 10 times and it’s still “fun” even now.
