I'd rate this trail moderate if you're not afraid of heights. There was one sketchy part where you cling horizontally, apart from that awesome and adventurous hike!

Nice, short end-of-day hike. Views are great from the top. Would probably rate this more as moderate, just because of the steps. But good family hike.

Another great hike - this one is pretty uphill over rock with uneven terrain. We went on a day where it was down-pouring, very windy, and very cold - although that probably wasn't the greatest idea, we had an amazing time on this trail and would definitely return in the future. Definitely wear hiking boots and, if you attempt during the winter, be prepared for ice! Agree with moderately-strenuous rating

Probably the most beautiful hike I've done to date - we went a few days ago when the weather was expected to be cloudy, but it ended up snowing about a quarter of the way up... luckily no ice. But the views to the summit, and the different types of scenery, were just stunning. We were walking through the clouds for a fair part of it. Absolutely recommend.

Hard/strenuous is the right rating for this one. Although it's not steep-uphill the whole time, it's definitely uphill with uneven terrain. I attempted to do this three years ago when I was 100lb heavier and couldn't get even 1/4 of the way. Bring water, and if you're hiking in the winter, be prepared... ice could get bad, as the majority of the Trail is on rock. Follow the cairns!

Absolutely recommend.

Great loop hike with nice views. Good for all skill levels and easy to follow.

Gorge path.....what a nice hike. Had done it 20 years ago and did it again this fall. Nice hike, less crowdy.
The mix of going up Cadillac by Gorge and going down by The North ridge trail. Allows you to enjoy the view on the way down which is easier to watch; and enjoying the forest on the way up. Especially clever during the hot summer days

Very scenic hike up the mountain. Beautiful views of the area from the top.
