Combined Tibbet Knob Trail with Big Schloss Trail for a 7.5 mile hike with 2000 ft elev. gain. A good workout. Highly recommended.

great view from the bridge as well from the rocks at the very end. a great place to overlook 2 valleys!

Great trail. Steep climb for about a mile, then levels off along the ridge. Beautiful views. Trail is pretty rocky - so would only recommend sturdy hiking boots. Looking forward to completing Tibbett Knob next.

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.

One of the best hikes in the East !

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.

The first part (..7 miles) is steep, and most of the trail is rocky. The views at the top, though, looking down into both WV and VA are about as great as they get.

Huge mountain peak & beautiful view! Can't wait to hike this mountain again!

Fun little hike; stopped off with the boyfriend and dog on our way to a cabin. The trail is rocky, which we liked. There are three rock outcroppings with a nice view at the top. Best part was we didn't encounter a single soul on this trail, even though the parking lot it shares with Big Shloss was packed!

Good moderate trail with great views at the top. Hiked in February with snow on the trail. It is steep from the get go but levels out about a mile up. The bridge connecting the two peaks at the top is pretty cool! Also snow covered rocks were pretty slippery at summit so had to be careful.
