My wife and I hiked this trail taking turns carrying our son in a backpack carrier. We left around 9 am and the weather was in the 50-60s and overcast. The trail is easy to follow and was bladed the entire length. It has a few steep spots but is generally a gradual slope down to the creek bed if coming from the south end of the trail by the pavilion. The natural bridge is under the bench if want to look for it too.
