The trail was well taken care of and posed very few issues. Some spots were a bunch of loose rocks, but nothing to cause worry. It is fairly steep gradient, but the view at the top is absolutely worth it. I ate my lunch there today. I am told if you keep going on the trail until you come to a shelter, ~2-3 miles further, there is another lookout. I heard it was just as good. I would definitely recommend this trail.

It's was awesome! It was my first hike in 25 years. My 24 year old daughter and I found it perfectly enjoyable and challenging. Look forward to more adventures in pa.
Lots of uphill and lots of rocks (it is PA after all). A good afternoon hike that will get you breathing heavy if you're not in tip top shape. There is shelter with a privy and spring where you can refill your water cache at the top. All in all, it was definitely an enjoyable hike.
