Difficulty Ratings

Our difficulty ratings are based on the average family hiker who's in good physical shape, but is not an avid hiker.

  • Easy - Relatively flat with little elevation changes, and no challenges like stream crossings or boulder sections. Younger children could handle these segments.
  • Moderate - Some hills, but less than 200 feet in elevation change. Could have steep or muddy sections. Tweens should be okay with these segments.
  • Hard - More hilly terrain, with more than 200 feet in elevation change. More appropriate for teens and older.
