Absolutely amazing. Quickest hike I've done but so amazing. Be careful on the rocks at the top.
Awesome short hike, good for 95% of people. Some steep rough spots but nothing that a novice couldn't complete. Loved it
Very short but very steep hike to rocks. There are a few things to see past the rocks but we didn't go past them. Don't let the distance fool you, it's a great workout! The view is more than worth the climb.
This is my favorite hiking trail. It's great for all levels of hikers.
It's short enough to do when you have a couple hours to spare, and challenging enough that you'll never get bored whether it's your 1st or 100th time climbing.
My now 4 year old has made this hike, without being carried, many times over the past 2 years. It is definitely kid friendly.
There's also a black bear living close by who we see at the top about once a year. Don't worry, I've never heard about him being a nuisance. Just keep your distance and let him be :)
And of course, the views are spectacular. On clear days or foggy it is absolutely worth the hike.
Very very nice. Not super difficult. Beautiful rocks at the top
Hard trail for a beginner, but so rewarding to reach the top and see those views!!
Favorite hike so far. The trail up was so much fun even though it was difficult. Scenery along the way up the best. Very windy at the top and scrambling over the Rock to sit and take pics was a little spooky
it's a wonderful short hike with gorgeous views; slightly longer & immensely better hike if you go up the back way (on the AT).
I've done this hike twice with my wife. 750 ft. in half a mile is intense, but the view at the top is so worth it.
Steep. Great view.
Great view when you get to the top well worth the hike up.
Great hike, very steep, 1 mile climb, but the views at the top are worth it. Very heavily traveled with lots of kids and dog friendly. Close parking. Rock outcropping at the top is small and can get very crowded.
This is our favorite hiking trail. It's a fun hike up with lots to explore, and the view is amazing every time. It's not a long trail at all, and we like making it the last stop on our hiking trips because we know it won't disappoint!
Great view that is definitely worth the climb. The way up is no joke, don't let the short distance fool you. Also kept going to the peak of Humpback Mtn. That was much quieter and also enjoyable, although the view will be better in the fall when the leaves are thinner.
Great hike, uphill the whole way up so was a challenge for the gluts and thighs haha view from the top is definitely worth it!
