Beautiful hike and a fall ( October)day going again in October 2019

God was this hard! Hiked it with my 20 year old son who said he’d love to do it as a race... Not me man! It felt good, at 50, to get to the top. Going up the ropes with my child was a nonstarter. We’re going to do it again and MAYBE I’ll try the ropes...I dunno. I say that now, from my office chair in Jersey.

I went two days ago with some friends. The hike was great! It was a little muddy, but nothing too bad.

took my cousin and daughter here a couple years back during a pretty nasty storm, excellent climb up, exhilarating summit!

We had a great time. most dogs were off leash, and that's ok with us, ours was too unless we spotted people ahead. my wife and I went with our newborn and our 2.5 year old, who made it most of the way before I had to carry her. Well marked and maintained trail with a great view at the top

Started with light rain. Trail has many spots that could use water bars. Lots of water on the trail. Bring your waterproof boots. No snow from TH to Lower Lena. Light traffic. Bring oxygen mask and TP if you use the TH bathrooms. Ugh!

Unreal. Easy access, fun hike. Feels like summer in mid January.

Awesome view. Definitely worth the steep climb and ropes to get to the top.

easily completed within a few hours, great for the whole family.

It was a nice hike except for the motorcycles. The views were amazing.

Fantastic. One of my favorites we’ve done so far. It is a harder hike but not impossible. My husband dog and I made it up in less than an hour. Ran into people along the way but not too much. The drive in is rural so download everything beforehand. There’s snow up at the top there still which was great. Beyond amazing views. Fabulous all around.

No snow, no ice. it almost felt like spring. some water on the trail, but nothing anyone can't manage.

An amazing hike. Easy parking access. Great views and multiple trails to explore!

I’ve hiked this trail several times throughout the year. The trail is in good condition and easy to follow. There are a few inches of snow at the top but it’s still safe to scramble the shoulder for the view.

Avoid the upper goat path. I is thick enough to be a hazard but to thin to work with just under 1/4”. Fall protection gear is highly recommended. For above the continuation.

Good trail, very pet friendly. Great views of the surrounding area.

Nice hike. Good if you want something that’s not too difficult. Winter so it wasn’t to busy but even still on our way back down we saw many people on their way up. Beautiful views of waterfalls and the lake is lovely. Only specs of snow at the moment.

Loved this hike. It tested not only my physical strength but also mental strength. beautiful views and worth the rope climb to the top!

What a gorgeous hike. I hiked this on December 24th and you begin in a lush forest even during winter, there is a lot of green and a lot of huge trees. I didn’t encounter any snow but there was snow present on slopes further up past the trail. It definitely deserves the hard rating if hiked all the way to the top. If stopping at the first viewpoint it may be a moderate. There is a lot of elevation gain quick. The last part after the end of the maintained trail is a little sketchy, some ropes are there to help up but I wouldn’t place all your weight on them. The view from the top is definitely worth it.

Downed trees on the Sand Point leg of the trail, about half mile from the trailhead. Tall foliage makes it difficult to locate trail again once you go around if you’re short. Bear tracks on beach nearest the Sand Point trail leg/beach junction.

Damn I loved this hike. One of my top 3 for 2018, along with Angel’s Landing in Zion and Old Rag in Shenandoah. If you feel confident in your balance and climbing skills, you need to go all the way to the top. If not, I wouldn’t risk it. Once you go past the end-of-maintained-trail sign, things get pretty hairy ... and fun. The ropes are fine for balance, but I wouldn’t trust them with full body weight. Another reviewer said one snapped. Take a pair of heavy gloves, even if it’s hot, for navigating the rocks at the top, and especially on the way down from the peak. I took a couple long breaks and several short ones on the way up. It’s a great workout. This is a bucket list hike for me.

12/30 What a gorgeous hike! Just a little bit of snow near the lake but the trail is definitely wet. Bring waterproof shoes! There's so much to see on the way up. The restroom at the lake was locked but someone had broken into one of the stalls. I feel guilty for saying this, but Im really glad they did.

Super fun and easy boardwalk trail, we backpacked in and camped at one of the sites along the water, it was a blast. Didn’t do the full triangle, just an out and back, no time for the full beach section, but I’ve heard the petroglyphs are very cool.

For a somewhat out-of-shape 50 year-old who used to be an athlete in my younger days, this was a great test of Character. Did it solo, as at the last week before, the others I was to be climbing with had to back out. Trained somewhat before doing this hike but not nearly what I would have liked to.
Very strenuous for me. Took almost 9 hours to do the round-trip. Thought I was in the clear after I got to the top but did not realize that coming down (Using hiking poles which, in my opinion is a must) was going to hurt even more. (Oh, my knees!!)
Even so, was a hike that I will remember forever.
If you leave early and pace yourself, it will be strenuous but doable and well worth it!!

Beautiful hike

Great hike! Conditions last week of December were good. A few muddy spots. A few down trees, but nothing serious. There was a little snow at the top, but none on the trail.

The climb starts off very steep. If you have a hard time at the start, expect the same difficulty for the duration of the climb. I would say the last .5 miles is a pretty narrow trail and probably isn’t the best for people with a fear of heights. It also gets a little steep, I would call it a scramble. There are fixed ropes in place but note these aren’t the best ropes. One broke on someone in front of me on the way down. Overall, I would say this a difficult hike. Proper gear, water, and snacks should be used.

Did the trail 12/23. There is a lot of down trees .5 mi in on the Sand Point trail leg making it very difficult to get around. Was an easy walk/hike with beautiful views along the ocean even though it was raining. The ocean leg of the hike slowed things down due to it being harder to walk on the rocks/sand/logs/seaweed. Saw 2 small black bears on the edge of the woods along ocean.

Pretty hike! I’d love to come back and camp sometime. Some bugs, not too bad. Popular trail, parking fills up fast.

Best day hike ever......but you must be in good shape....... for this butt kicker. I'm 64 years old.
