I hiked from a trail at the bottom of the mountain, that connects the main trail, to the ledges and let me just say it was much harder than I expected it to be! My parents also hiked it with me and they also thought it was difficult, but it was worth it! The views at the top were great. And even though it was difficult, I'd definitely hike it again!

This is a beautiful part of the AT. Not as tough as the Mahoosics but still a leg burner.
