It is only moderately difficult. You could be, but could also be a beginner or a person who just likes to take walks out in nature enjoying the fresh air, or a person who is only starting their journey towards being an adventurous, limit pushing individual. You can also be a person who likes special time in nature with their children. This is the perfect trail for that as it is only fairly challenging.
