    Tim Mellinger reviewed The Door Trail

    4 months ago

    Short but wonderful trail. Once we got off the boardwalk and stepped into the Badlands it felt like we were standing on the moon. Easy to see how someone could get lost in the Badlands. Great views of the area all along the trail especially towards the end. Some fairly steep drop offs also! Be careful! Loved this trail!

    Awesome trail! In the Badlands you feel like you are on another planet. The ladder going up made me a little nervous but I was fine on the way back down. As you reach the end of the trail you get a great view! This trail is a Badlands must do!!

    Steep hike need good grip on your shoes. Beautiful views as you go up. Great way to get out and feel the Badlands. To truly experience this place you have to hike it and the short trails are perfect to get out and see it! Bring water!

    We got there super early as the sun was coming up. Being a sacred Indian mountain and the prayer cloths added to the mystery of the mountain. The mountain itself looks unlike the other mountains in the Black Hills and feels open and great views abound. We loved this place!

    One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The drive there up the Needles Highway was great, we even saw some mountain goats. The trail was awesome. At about 1 mike in is an amazing view and there are many more all along the way. The peak itself is unique due time the watchtower. Definitely recommend this trail!

    Peaceful hike to a gorgeous bald with stunning views. The day we went the parking lot was packed but everybody else went the other way, we had the trail to ourselves, literally, all the way down and back up. Loved the hike. Not too strenuous, and took us under 2 hours.

    Tim Mellinger reviewed Alum Cave Trail to Mount LeConte

    5 months ago

    My favorite hike ever!! We started the hike at about 7:15am so there were only a few other people along the trail so early. Inspiration point at about 2 miles is beautiful! Alum cave was pretty neat too. Above there is where the hike really gets interesting to me. Such amazing views and some of the cliffs you are on just make it a great experience. A long hike but worth the effort. We went to the lodge and Cliff Top. I am so glad we did the spur to Cliff Top, the views were stunning!! Felt like we were on top of the world! Took us roughly 6 hours start to finnish. One piece of advice, bring food, we did not and were starving for the last few miles. The Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg was the best $40 I ever spent afterwards.

    Starting off in the parking lot the views blow you away. We left early in the morning so the trail was not as busy. Absolutely breathtaking once you reach the Jump Off. Great views along the way also. Once we reached the summit of Mt Kephart we weren't sure if that was the jump off but had to go through some brush to continue. Once we got to the Jump Off there was no mistaking it. Absolutely incredible! Highly reccommend.

    Possibly my favorite hike we did here. If you go past the arch on the left there is a place where the rock drops off and the view is spectacular! We were amazed! Watch your dogs and kids. Highly recommend this trail!!

    Amazing views from the edge of the mountain! The road driving up there is TERRIBLE though. Took us 20 minutes to drive the 5 miles up there but once you get there can do this hike plus Chimney Top also. Worth the trip for sure! Best part for us wasn’t the Princess Arch but the views from the hike around it. Loved it!

    Absolutely breathtaking hike. The views are amazing and walking onto the sky bridge is an amazing experience. The day we went had 25-30mph gusts of wind so it was unnerving for sure. If you are afraid of heights it’s a great hike to conquer that! Highly recommend!

    We loved it. Really cool going over the backbones! A couple of places made me uneasy due to heights but absolutely a great hike! Definitely a Hoosier must!
