Who’s Classifying Trails?

I find it perplexing when I go to a Park’s website to check out the available trails, their website lists the trail as a “Difficult” hike, I then go to a hiker website such as “All Trails” and the same hike is listed as “Easy”? I guess it is all relative to the individual hiker’s ability who is posting. I decided to make the 2 hour drive and hike the trail, ironically in my opinion, neither was accurate, it was a “moderate” hike. Would love some feedback on how each hike difficulty level is determined!

My passion is hiking and building Walk and Wine Friends hiking club which has brought so much joy to my life! Making friends throughout the US and even Australia, sharing the things I love--Nature, hiking, kayaking, travel, wine and meeting people who enjoy those same things.
