Such an awesome hike in 18° weather with snow!
Need micro spikes and poles when hiking in January
Easy hike, amazing view
Easy climb, great reward. Beautiful view and nice spot to swim after hiking.
Happy we wore micro spikes so we could get up to ledge. Beautiful hike.
Loved this perfect! So worth getting up early to watch the sunrise!
Nice hike even if the weather isn't that great. Not very crowded today, but can be.
Great workout on a short steepish trail
One of my favorite hikes! Clear trail, amazing views.
Beautiful views from the ledge, but very crowded.
Crowded but the payoff at the top was well worth it.
Relatively easy hike that is packed with tourists. Amazing views at the ledge though.
very easy hike and beautiful sceneries in the woods as well as top
