Nice quick hike with a nice view of Echo Lake and Cannon Mountain. Started from the Cannon Mountain Parking lot opposition the Lodge and it was fast going up. Going down is steep and icy. My group ended up butt sliding down and enjoyed that. If you go starting from the highway the ice might make it not so fun.
Great trail for family that is in fair physical condition. My family and I hiked this about 2 hours before dark and made it up and to the road in plenty of time. We were a group of 44 male, 39 female, 15 male, 12 female and a 10 year old female. Trail is well marked with some fantastic boulders to climb and a great view at the top. Well worth the trip
