My favorite day hike. Did the new trail. Tough but not technically challenging. Loved emerging on the other side of the clouds to amazing views. Bring plenty of water. Next time I'll bring my dog, and try the old trail.

Was looking for a hike that was difficult, but not OMG are you kidding difficult. Mailbox was the perfect fit.
Long (more like 11 miles rt), but not too long. Steep, but not insanely so. Trail in really good shape. Took about 4 and a half hours round trip.
Btw, major props to those who worked so obviously hard making a trail through the rocks near the summit. It turned what could have been something daunting into a much easier hike. Thank you for your work.

We loved this hike! The first 3.5 miles were gradual and beautiful through the woods. Once you reach the opening, the terrain becomes steeper and and rockier. This is more challenging part. Even with all the smoke, the visibility was good. You are hiking the last mile in the sun, so being water, sun screen and snacks. It took up 3.5 hours up and 2.5 down. The best part... NO BUGS! YIPPIEEEE!

One of the most challenging hikes I've ever done. We took the new trail up and the old one on the way down... big mistake! Don't take the old trail down! Views at the top were amazing. I'd definitely do this hike again!

Challenging but nice view once at the peak. If doing the hike on the weekend, I suggest you get there no later than 7:00 AM. It's a very popular hike and the peak gets pretty crowded (hard to find a spot to sit, relax, and eat your snack).
