Mostly intermediate trail with some rock gardens (like the Causeway) and little sections that will challenge you. Use Cabin Hill and the Rock Garden to make the full Golden Belt Loop (GBL)

       More technical rock features than I expected for Kansas! Also some climbs to nice views of the lake and plenty of deer to see along the way.
