Very nice but very difficult trail! Nicest views are on the way back from the helipad. Hard scramble to the top from the helipad.

Fantastic hike. Reaching the summit made this a 5 start hike. The first couple miles are very standard, nothing jumps out at you. The closer you get to the summit, the better it gets. Definitely a strenuous hike and I don't recommend reaching the summit unless you are an experienced hiker. Views on the top of Mt Lady Mac are spectacular.

Do not hike up the left side of the final ascent to reach the summit. I made that mistake and made it a lot tougher than it should have been. Right side/lighter colored rocks is a lot easier.

The best hike and scrambling I ever had. The ridge walking is a blast.
