I went on this trail with my son's Boy Scout troop in October of 2017. The trail was awesome. Great views and great rock formations. If you don't like boulder hopping then this isn't the trail for you. So pack a lunch and hike to the top and find a spot to enjoy the views and lunch!

...we were gifted with crystal clear blue skies all day long as we explored the area on our snowshoes, constantly in awe of the landscape , the imposing mass of Mt Baker and not to be out done , the glaciated face of Mt Shuksan...... it is incredibly quick and easy access from the ski hill into the open , back country.... and even tho there was a fair number of people exploring the area there was no escaping the " out there " , wild feel of it..... the only draw back was a rather tedious cross slope trail that proved cumbersome in snowshoes going from Artist Point up to the saddle where the trail branches off for Ptarmigan Ridge, but small potatoes compared to the sights that surrounded us. will definitely be back , ..and i must explore this area in the summer months !

quick 2 hour hike. added Little Stony Point after. once you get to the top. great views and MUCH easier on the way down.

I would say this is a easy trail it is short and completely paved

Best hike I’ve had so far. Definitely worth going in the off season, hardly any traffic. Went with a group of friends and we definitely built a stronger bond because we used a lot of teamwork due to the obstacles(ice, rain, height difference, experience, etc.)

This was an awesome hike! We extended it out Friday-Saturday!
The trail is easy to find and pretty fun to hike!

The creek was flowing well and was super gorgeous!

Not sure I’d call this a hiking trail. This is a tourist stop. 1/2 mike up a paved pathway. Lots of people. Parking is crazy. The lookout is great. Highest point in the Smokey mountains and highest point in Tn. My son was 8 and thought it was cool to be higher than clouds. Actually, we was in a cloud part of the walk.

Hiked this trail in the rain, which got a little dicey at times, but it was definitely worth it! Because of the weather we only saw only about 4 or 5 other people on the trail the entire day. The downside was that we could hardly see anything from the top of Old Rag due to all the fog, but it was still a really fun hike.

Beautiful scenery- we had the perfect weather! Also stopped and put the ENO up by the Creek. ❤️

We hiked this trail after hiking Centerpoint/Goat Trail. Not a very difficult hike and much shorter in distance than Centerpoint. Several spots away from the point to make camp. Very scenic and makes for excellent photography. As always, I recommend camping. I suggest doing it away from the point though as there are several people that hike it early in the morning.

great hike

Definitely my favorite place I have been hiking. I am 19, 5’7”, and around 180lbs so im not in the best shape, but I have a passion for scrambling. It was 10° when I got there but after about a half hour of hiking I actually needed to remove my hoodie! I see people mentioning the need for significant upper body strength but imo it wasnt really as important as people chalked it up to be. One thing that did cause some problems: My height. There are a few points where you need to scale the face of a boulder and the shorter you are, the harder it is (Though I managed to get by). Another thing that happened was about halfway through the scrambling my calves began to “lock” into place and hurt whenever I plantar flexed (bent foot toes facing down). I had a sports drink with me which reduced the problem in a matter of minutes, so if you arent used to this type of terrain, I highly recommend you bring something with plenty of electrolytes in addition to water. I would say as long as youre prepared, and somewhat in shape (but willing to push yourself), this is a hike worth making the trip for!

Great views but if you want a good workout type hike in the winter this isn’t it. When icy, a lot of the trail is so slow and you need cramp ons. Would be a Great trail to run when not icy. Also not very challenging for a hike. Not much elevation gain, I’d rate it easy, it’s a stretch to call moderate, maybe only when there’s ice.

Great hike. The start of the white trail up is more of a road and there was recent clear cutting to widen it (not very scenic) but once past the quarry the trail thins out and you get great views of the Hudson. The actual summit is a bit inland past the river views and has a bit of tree cover. Past that it’s a long gentle down hill. Then you hit the Cornish estate Ruins which is an awesome treat on a somewhat uneventful descent. We went in winter so it was empty but I hear summer is a zoo.

Great trail with some fun rock scrambles. I went up the rocks which was more fun and am sure safer as well when out alone. I like the solitude of trail hiking so did the loop at about 8:30 and took me about 3.5 hours of moving fairly quick and and only saw maybe 12 people. Best getting the popular trails done in the off season. Will definitely be a trail I’ll have friends do as well.

Busy but one of my favorite hikes

Fun hike with a great view at the beginning and the top. Very icy though, even with microspikes we had some gnarly spills on certain segments.
