Awesome hike! Probably best hike in the area with nothing but pleasant hikers to share the trail!

Good hike, especially if you add in Felsman Loop, about 6.2 miles total. Saw quite a few people wearing running shoes, not recommended, to rocky the last 3/4 of a mile!

Seemed real easy in the beginning, but boy was I wrong. The views are def worth it once you make it to the top.

looks really easy when you park at the bottom, once you start going and you think you get to the top, sike! the trail turns to the other side of the mountain and you have to climb up that part too. great hike, many places to explore when you get to the top. not a very private hike, there are always a TON of people on it. great view and would do it again!

Coming from the Rockies, I may be a little biased, but Trail was still great. Wasn’t the prettiest trail or the hardest trail, however, before the fog rolled in the views were good and sections were reasonably challenging. Not a lot of people on the trail when I was there, so that was good.

One of the most physically challenging but rewarding hikes I've ever been on. Take a good 45 minutes to an hour to get up to the peak but totally worth it. Inclines are moderate but it's a journey as there's boulders to traverse and uneven ground at times. The rock formations up top are amazing and the views are second to none. Highly recommended. Bring water, a snack and make sure you wear good hiking shoes or boots.
