A beautiful hike and very manageable. I did the full loop adding Sugar Loaf Mountain and Mink Hollow. Only difficult about 2.5 miles of the 15 I hiked. Sturdy boots a must with the rocks and the views were spectacular. I would say this is more Advanced than Hard. A beginner in decent shape can do this one.

Lovely hike, it has a good amount of uphill, but it was very manageable. Lots of downhill too. We started at a different entrance, but it was good all the same!

Hard is to say the least ... If you're not experienced don't do this one ... Did the loop almost did twin mountain also but was pooped ... That's right i said it pooped ... This well marked trail is in combination with wall climbing and large jumps down ... As some points you have to slide down the rock on the trail... What an experience ... Loved it ... Great trail
