very challenging. my 8 year old son completed this hike! I'd do it again.

Tough climb with amazing views.

took the ranger trail, rough trail, hiked it when the last hurricane winds was coming in, loved it great trail to hike.

One of my favorite hikes. The view as are incredible.

The uphill hike is pretty difficult but the view at the top is worth it!

One of the toughest trails I’ve hiked in north Georgia but it is completely worth it for that view. It’s very steep and you have to go around lots of boulders but pace is definitely the trick. I can’t wait to hike this one more often!

My sister and I hiked this trail all the way to the summit this past weekend. We clocked it at being over 6.5 miles though, from the trailhead to the summit and back. Definitely a harder trail, and not very dog friendly (you’ll likely end up carrying your dog at some point or another). It is set up in three obvious stages, the first being the White Wall clearing about 2 miles in, the second being another clearing with a fire pit and unkempt restrooms, and the third being the actual summit clearing. The cliff wall has amazing views as you hike to the summit, and is a great spot for pictures and enjoying the scenery. The main trail is well marked for the majority of the hike, with neon green plates nailed into the trees along the way, and a few red markers for paths that are not official trail. Great spot for climbing if you follow a path off from the White Wall clearing too. There are restrooms in the parking lot, but they were locked on during our visit.

Awesome trail lots of places to climb the trails where fun but we had a blast blazing our own and then climbing to the top. Not to many people if you get there early in the day. I honestly think that this trail is on the easier side of "Hard".

One of my favorite difficult trails to hike when visiting my mom! Great exercise and the view makes it well worth it.

Great hike ! Really gets the blood pumping. Beautiful views. Start earlier and you won’t have to deal with high traffic.

It’s a climb to the top with little relief. Breaks up into the 3 stages. Very much an accomplishment hike. You can see where you going from the moment you park. Rewarding views.

this was a great hike. However I do not recommend bringing dogs . I had to carry my German Shepard at one point.

One of my favorites. Afterward we usually drive over to Yonah winery and enjoy a glass of wine for our reward

It was a nice out and back, probably better to do it during week traffic wise.

Fairly easy trail. Took inexperienced friend along on her first ever hike and she did it no problems. absolutely beautiful scenery. Great to see a beautiful area not have fences and guard rails.

Great hike :) This trail had an abundance of wildflowers and starts off moderately easy. you'll get to the 1.25 mile marker and then it starts getting steep. enjoyed the summit immensely. Be sure to wear good hiking boots, bring trekking poles if you've got them, and I would not recommend doing this hike in the rain as it could be very slippery.

If you plan on doing the entire trail, be prepared, bring water, maybe even a lunch or a snack for the top. I would give it 5 stars, but this trail has become way to commercial over the last 2 years. It's very busy on the weekends. It can be a strenuous trip to the top for some, but well worth it for the views when you get there.

vista maravillosa, el lugar muy bonito...

Pretty steep but worth it

I wouldn't rate it as hard unless you're not in fair shape. The cliff at the top is worth the effort.

Beautiful views from the top!

The trail isn't marked well (we got lost a couple of times) but other than that, it was a great vigorous hike!

I did this trail last summer and it was super hot which made it harder but overall it was an amazing trail. The reward at the top was well worth it.

The fact that it was rated HARD intimidated me. Don't let it do the same to you. Go at your own pace and make your way to the top to enjoy the beautiful view!

Tough son of a B, so rewarding! Awesome cliff side views at the top of you stay to the right. Then you get a wide open field for campin out at the top (if you stay left when you get to the top you get to the wide open spots quicker.. so If you’re getting there late to set up camp.. stay left lol then check out the rock side views in the daylight) definitely would recommend trekkin poles!!

Great hike, definitely strenuous at parts, but the views from the rocky cliff is quite spectacular! I would love to go back and camp out there - they have some great backwoods camping spots!
