nice short hike, not good for climbing or bouldering. i think my 70 year old grandma could do this hike, but it was really pretty, so if you are looking for something short and not difficult, just to get out in the mountains- this is a really good hike for you

Beautiful views of the Parkway, great place for stargazing in the warmer months.

A very popular trail...but for a good reason. It is short and steep (my track was about a half mile and 450 feet to the top). The first two thirds of the trail is not difficult...the beginning even being paved. It is just the last section where it gets a little rocky. And the views are amazing all the way up, particularly on the beautiful fall afternoon I visited! It is located at mile 451.2, with a large parking area, restrooms, picnic tables and a nice visitor center.

Beautiful vistas almost entire way to top. So worth the effort to get to top. Beautiful drive to a very nice trail head with breathtaking views and restroom facilities. A very doable trail for novice.

Beautiful and breathtaking views the entire trail. The trail is very short but very steep in some spots.

Haven't been hiking in quite a while. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Last half is kind of rough but well worth it. Scenery is beautiful.

very nice, moderately hard hike. The last half of trail might be considered challenging for inexperienced hikers, but my family enjoyed it. The view at the top is worth the walk.
