It is not simple to rate hikes, as most all will possess easy to strenuous sections, and one person’s easy is another’s strenuous. We have opted to rate the hikes by their overall character.

Easy well maintained trails and/or mostly flat terrain.
Moderate mostly good trails, with significant elevation changes of a gradual nature or short but strenuous.
Strenuous will contain some or all of following conditions: off trail hiking, creek/river crossings, rough terrain, significant elevation changes, long hiking days.
