We did the whole trail. It is very difficult, but even two seniors made it. Just take it slow and be sure you have good hiking shoes. Lovely view!

Bring a lot of water but the hike is worth the view and a great place to enjoy lunch below the summit.

Way easier than the East Summit and manageable for children. Has a beautiful view and well worth the trip.

Super hard, but amazingly worth it. Even though we weren't experiences hikers, the home up and down was still very enjoyable and challenging. We went on New Year's Eve and it was perfect. Definitely worth it.

A tough climb but well worth the effort for the views. I went on a Wednesday in June and it was still busy but most trails are wide enough to accommodate everyone and you can cross over to both summits regardless of which one you start on (east or west summit trails).

Very popular trail in spite of the difficulty. Grade is persistently steep. Starts with dirt and rock steps near the bottom but becomes a true New England-style boulder scramble near the summit. Views of Little Rock and Lake Maumelle are excellent.

Does not require a lot of skill, but is tiring
