What is the difference between difficulty levels?
Difficulty levels give a general idea of how strenuous a trail it. This typically includes terrain, elevation change, and length of trail. Note, that these are general guidelines. Each person's idea of "easy" can be different. Use trail maps, descriptions, and user feedback in conjunction with the difficulty level to determine if the trail is well suited for your use.
- Easy: Paved or flat terrain with distances under 1.5 miles and very little elevation gain.
- Moderate: Uneven trails, but fairly easy to navigate obstacles. Distances between 1 and 5 miles with potential for rolling hills.
- Difficult: Rough trails requiring the user to constantly watch for obstacles. Over 5 miles between entrance/exit points and potential for steep terrain.
