Very nice hiking trail, not as hard as people say. I hiked this trail right before fall, and the views are worth it even when it's not fall! At the top, you can see many ridge-lines/mountain ranges. Also, you can see several sections of distant train tracks, including train tracks that you cross over at the beginning of the hike, The view is phenomenal.

Good trail. Is a difficult one. Made it in 3 hours, and my legs still hurt.

awesome trail, on the side of the mountain. Rocks, roots and areas that are sure to give some vertigo.
