I agree no views until you get to top. The views from behind the toilet were fabulous and then from South Doublehead were even better. We had a slippery time due to the leaves on the trail but worth the hike.
Great views for not a lot of effort. I have hiked this a couple of times, first time up the ski trail and then over to the first ledge view on South Doublehead and down the Old Path to the Ski trail. The second time I hiked up the New Path and then down the spur path to the two ledges with views then back to the New Path to the Junction with the Old Path and out the ski trail and walked back the road. The ski trail is wide and easy a bit steeper at the top. Old path is a little steeper but not a problem going down. Trails are in good condition. New Path is more challenging, quite steep and with poor footing for the top half. I would not recommend this as an easy way down.
Not much to see on the way up, the trail is pretty plain except for a smattering of small flowers on either side of the trail. It's entirely possible that things weren't in full swing when I went. Lots of fantastic views from the top and places to explore around the cabin.
Decent Hike, great views. Definitely would hike it again. Pup friendly.
