It was a beautiful day to wake up at the gap and decide against doing an 18 miler and just do Big Schloss. I left around 8/9am and ran into a few people but it was generally empty. The trail got a bit more crowded as I returned but nothing out of hand. A beautiful hike for sure and a nice breeze when you get to the ridge.

It was a little over crowded and rocky but those views at the overlook make up for that!

Had this trail mostly to ourselves. The overlook is one of the best views I've come across so far, absolutely beautiful.

Hiked it with my dog. The rock scramble near the top was fun and well worth the view.

A great moderate hike with amazing views at the top!

Views: 4/5. Rocky outcropping at the top gives a beautiful view of the bowl to the South. There were a surprising number of flies and hornets at the top, but other than that was quite nice.
Solitude: 5/5. Saw two other hikers on the trail on a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning.
Difficulty: Medium. Steep at times. Rock scrambles were short and moderately challenging.
