This is a strenuous hike. All ups and downs. While the Rim trail is 5 miles, it is 0.75 miles from Via Granada so the total mileage is 6.5. I rate it moderate plus. Mostly sun but some shade. We hike up to the Rim from Via Granada and then turn left going clockwise around the Reservoir. We will rest at the top of killer hill. It's not the last hill. Restrooms at the Dam where we will take a brief rest before returning to Via Granada.
