Pretty easy walk, last part with the stairs is the hardest but still achievable if you are a regular exerciser. Great view and great way to finish a day of sight seeing.

This is definitely worth the hike. The views are great and the hike gives you a great appreciation of the forested mountains around Kyoto.
