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.

A fun day hike for sure with a good reward at the end with great views. We saw some rock climbers while hiking that looked like they were gonna stay the night on top. A nice hike for the region.

Great for a solo hike because it isn't as popular as its sister hike, Big Schloss. I went in March and didn't see a soul. 2 beautiful overlooks. 2 small rock scrambles. I wouldn't consider it a hard hike. perhaps hard for a dog or small children.

Have done this hike 3 times, and have never been disappointed. And while we've never had the trail to ourselves, I have never seen this hike crowded. On all three occasions, I can't recall there being more than a handful of people on the trial. The first mile up is a bear; quite steep and hard on the legs. But after that, it more or less levels out and you are treated to some ridge walking until you reach the rock outcrop of Big Schloss. Simply gorgeous, magnificent views.
