Beautiful views. I would rate it as an easy hike, but still enjoyable.

Well marked trail. I started behind 2 trees Inn this time. Some steep sections, but not overly strenuous. One section has a pathway through rock that's a little difficult to fit through, but if you go up sideways you should be fine. Good hike.

Quick hike but a beautiful view! Although a little disappointed that the trees have already lost most of their color. Looking forward to going earlier in the fall next year.

I enjoy it here and views at the end of the hike make it ALL worth it. I do wish there was more to do.

Easily accessible loop trail, moderately trafficked. nice view at the top. One person mentioned on here that they couldn't see the water due to the trees, the summit view trail branches off of the loop near the top. Would do it again.
