a couple of friends and I did an over nighter on tibbets knob at the end of October. such a great, beautiful hike.
This trail definitely lived up to its rating of "difficult" but is a great hike. The views from the top are exactly what you would expect from the valley. Glad I brought my stick. There's a nice spot at the top for camping for those who are inclined to backpacking.
Well marked trail and gorgeous views. Slightly more difficult than Big Schloss due to steep terrain and rocky path but still a short and relatively easy hike.
Had a nice hike! Took our time so it took about an hour up and we didn't even reach the top. Lots of snow still but awesome views. Trail was muddy and snowy but manageable. Will definitely try again when the slush is gone.
Great hike. We tackled the summit on a cold and snowy day. Temp was around 15 degrees and already 6" of fresh powdery snow. Yaktrax worked well in the fresh powder. Rock scrammbles were a challenge in the snow but very rewarding after we reached the top. Highly recommend on a clear day for great views both east and west.
It was a really good hike, like many of the other reviews say it was closer to 4 miles than 3.1. However it was really no trouble for my two girls ages, 10 and 12 with frequent breaks. Everyone really liked the "rock climbing" towards the top. Several good scenic with the first about half a mile up. Definitely recommend.
Did the trail from the bottom. Parking at Wolf Gap Recreation area. Would agree that the trail felt slightly longer than 3.1Miles from this point. Still good parking and we thought the views were great. We stayed the night at the top which is highly recommended. Good fire ring and stone bench.
We enjoyed several overlooks on the trail. Our GPS indicated that it was closer to 4.0 miles than the recorded 3.1 though. It's a steep hike, but not unenjoyable. I would not recommend bringing dogs unless you're able to help them up the few rock scrambles at the end. Overall, a very pleasant hike.
Maybe we were tired, but we did Big Schloss first and immediately did Tibbet (starts across the street). Tibbet was way, way harder. And the view not nearly as good. It was a fun, challenging trail. We enjoyed it. But be warned
Great 1 mile family hike if you use gravel road and approach trail from above. If you start at the bottom is going to be 3 miles obviously taking a lot longer. highly recommended, great views!!
shorter than big schloss. not as busy and great view at the top. some scrambling is required.
