This is a short, shady walk through the forest at a county park. Seems like it should be rated "easy" to me: there are a few uphill sections, but hardy moderate. There's a small stream off to the side of the trail for most of its length so be prepared for mosquitoes. One end of the trail is the natural playscape area which is great fun for kids! There are latrines at both ends of the trail.
