The best part of this trail is the rocks you can climb off trail. That is where the great views are....

Nice trail that allows you to see the presidents from all angles

Kid friendly and great views of the faces

Great hike. Moderate grade creeks and some great views when you get to the top. Only do the loop part if you are an experienced hiker and can bushwhack through the wilderness

A relatively easy hike until this loop at the southmost point. There is NO trail there. We persevered trying to make our way using GPS & finally did, but it was nothing less than treacherous and in my opinion DANGEROUS. This loop on this trip should NEVER have been left on the AllTrails site. We are very experienced hikers and never have encountered anything like this. Our worst hike ever (and we hike 72 miles/month)

Short and easy, good to get away from the crowd for a while
