This trail was pretty rough. Some steep rocky patches but the views at the top were so amazing. Definitely take tons of water and snacks.

Great trail with amazing views at the top. Took my 8 and 10 year old sons. They had a blast.

A great hike! Relatively constant incline at first subsides to a more comfortable hike towards the top. There's some scrambling and one part with sheer rock face, if I remember correctly. Fun hike.

Had a wonderful night up above the clouds at the top. Saw plenty of wildlife, not as many people as other reviewers experienced and the shelter wasn't as scary as some of the legends make it out to be. The best sunrise I've ever seen in my life was at the summit. I loved it.

Awesome hike, our second time up. Went back through Vogel state park the second time. Very nice trail down to park but a few extra miles. A strenuous hike, hard.

Great uphill day hike with lots of rocks and beautiful rhododendron thickets. The views are wonderful! It was definitely chilly, with the wind whipping through when we reached the top. There is a shelter and some camping sites at the top. Took just about an hour to get to the top with the elevation gain.

Love the Mountain Crossings Outfitters. Great hike with some elevation grabs, nice trail can be busy at times especially Saturday and Sunday's.
