Maybe I took a wrong turn but this started out easy, but got very steep and kinda tough. Beautiful scenery, water and wildlife. Just not easy for someone with a bad knee. My dog loved it!

Great Hike! Starts out with lots of built in stairs...definitely thought the terrain was moderate. Great for a good workout!

Starts off with a huge hill up and then a huge hill down then the trail is over

Good trail but muddy and a bit hard to follow. I’d say it’s more moderate than easy due to inclines and declines.

I would not call this trail easy by any stretch of the imagination! We hike often and this trail kicked our butt! There are frequent elevation changes, and with spring and mud upon us, making your way up and down the hills can me treacherous.

I enjoyed this trail and there were quite a few technical challenges, such as downed trees and streams to cross. Just please be careful with the muddy terrain. This trail will be easier in dry season, but still challenging.

Lovely. Muddy today but we only saw one person in five miles. Perfect for the dogs. Several stream crossings. Some good hills. Not for when the knees hurt.

Beautiful, awesome trail !!!

I wouldn't call it easy! Definitely has some good hills!

Pretty, somewhat challenging trail. Needs to be better marked though.

Perkins is hardly an easy trail. The first hill is killer and there are some really good ones after that. If you are doing both trails, it's more than 4.1 miles. If you do both, it's nearly 7 miles! I've done both several times.
