I hiked this over the summer. And the view was so amazing! It had been a stormy day so I saw the fog billow over the the mountain tops. And I was able to look down on a rainbow.
Beautiful trail and easy hike. Only down fall was the peak was so crowded.
Very easy hike with a great view!
I found this to be an easy trail to hike
Very steady incline throughout the trail. No super hard steep parts, but not much flat either. My 4 year old did it all on her own so it is family friendly. Amazing views for only 3 mile hike!
absolut zu empfehlen!
nicht besonders schwerer ca. 1 stündiger Anstieg im Wald. plötzlich steht man auf einem Felsen und sagt "Wow" !
Absolutely beautiful. You'll keep hearing it's the shortest and easiest hike for the benefit and I'll reiterate that! We did underestimate the incline of this trail based on some of the reviews but we made it and well worth every step. Definitely go on this one with kids, dogs, and mom's :)
It's an encouraging hike for new hikers!
In winter the snow tunnel of trees opens to a panoramic view of the notch.
Great family hike. Trail was easy up and down and view was great given the short hike. Both young daughter and puppy enjoyed it.
Loved this trail! Easy hike up. Gorgeous view of the notch. Last 1/5 mile is pretty flat.
This was a pretty easy hike. My friends who are new to hiking visited me from Florida and I took them to this place. They never hiked before and this was a very comfortable hike for them. It took as less than one hour to go up. The trails were pretty easy and the view was awesome.
This short hike gets you epic views. Add this to your trail bucket list. Get to the trail head early on a weekend because parking can be an issue. Only downside is the crowds.
Great hike! short distance yet still a good workout with great views at the end!
