The hike took 2.5 hours one way. Some steep areas and glimpses of the water as you approach the end. Beautiful view at the end. Pack a snack and sit down and enjoy the beautiful view!

Went on a Saturday morning and it was definitely crowded. It's not a hard hike but there isn't too much to see on the way up. The view at the end was better than expected!

A great hike, moderately challenging, well maintained trail. Only upset was how cloudy and misty it was, was unable to see the whole view at the end, but it added a mysterious vibe to the hike! Still worth it!

Loved this hike! The wooded area and forest was enchanting; old growth, trilliums, carpet of May flowers, moss and cool towering trees were a highlight. The end was magnificent, especially in the waining light.
