Great hike especially with Autumn colours!
It rained the passed days so it was a bit muddy but not difficult though.
Pretty crowded at this period of time.
View points are worth it and they are not only at the top!
Definitely compatible for family hike.

We went, based on 'kid friendly' reviews, with an 8 year old. This is about as far from kid friendly as I can imagine. There are places where there IS NO TRAIL, just sheer rock! There are roots and rocks all along the path, don't be fooled by the lovely rock step photos you see online, it's not like that the whole way. The descent is just as hard as the ascent. There is no way for a vehicle to access you in case of emergency. Trail length varies depending on the information source, we were expecting 4 hours and 8km and all in it was 14km and 7 hours. Other than giving birth it was the most physically challenging thing I've ever done! We eat healthy, are relatively fit and we struggled - I never would have gone with an 8 year old had I known it was going to take that long or be that demanding. If you're looking for a challenge, go for it, I prefer walks in the woods where you can actually look at the landscape instead of watching the path the whole time so you don't get hurt on a rock or root!

Great afternoon hike! Went East around the loop as was recommended to me by the ranger. Easier ascent that way. The hike itself is all through woods, which was nice on a warm day with very little breeze like today. It is a quite moist trail, so there were lots of bugs that seemed to have no spacial awareness. It got old after awhile. The views were awesome, particularly at the summit. It's only a few extra steps off the loop, so don't bypass it. It was my favorite part! Lots of roots and rocks and uneven terrain. Hiking poles are not necessary, but would be helpful.
