It's a butt buster going up! Great workout, nice reward at the end. Well traveled so you can safely hike alone.

Clear trail, great cardio, peaceful and no more than an hour up to gorgeous views! I took a left at the top to stop by the AT hut & pics along the way..if i had more time I would have loved to do some of the passed side trails.

Moderate trail with a serene reward at the end. Been hiking the White's for 35 years - one of my favorites. Great views of the surrounding peaks, a great swim in the lake, and the hut staff are always amazing!!

I loved this hike. I was at the trailhead at 9.25am on sunday 8/21. It was very less crowded. I hiked alone. As other mentioned, this hike was moderate because of the rocks. You need sturdy shoes. The lake was amazing. The AMC hut was cozy and you can get a nice coffee there after the hike.
