Based on other reviews, I expected this hike to be much easier. Although it wasn’t what I would call hard, but it is not for everyone. It had rained overnight so the rocks were slick during our ascent and multiple times I had to use my hands for extra assurance to not slip. There were signs on the trail, but twice they were a bit confusing to me and I ended up having to backtrack after realizing I was not on the correct trail. I wish I had tracked the mileage, because it felt longer than 1.9 miles. Overall I thought it was a great hike for the Midwest and would recommend.
