This is the most friendly "hike" you can take. It has a boardwalk the entire way so literally anyone can do it. It has people all over it, but you can't argue with the view at the end. Very pretty landscape. You can't get away from the people though

This was the first trail I have ever done with my family. It was very easy because there is a boardwalk you walk the whole way to Bald Rock. At the end you can stay in the boardwalk or get off and explore the scenes. We opted to explore and then walk back on a trail. It was so easy and we finally found an outdoor activity my seven year old loves!

Amazing view at the lookout. I highly recommend standing on the rock and just taking in the beauty of the view.

Beautiful walk. One can use the accessible walkway or take the more rugged "backcountry" trail out to Bald Rock.

Great handicap accessible boardwalk all the way out to Bald Rock and one of the best views from almost the highest point in the state. Restroom located at the parking lot trail entrance. You can choose to walk the boardwalk the whole way out, or go down the stairs a little way in and walk the trail be careful not to walk off the cliff at the end though if you have pets or small children.
