This hike was a lot of fun. If you have experience with hiking scrambles and no issues with heights you should be fine going up this cliff. The views are stunning and the Bowl is a nice touch; very quiet and isolated.

Trail was well marked and maintained. Pretty views and fun trail. Rungs were kind of scary as I’m afraid of heights. Go up Beehive trail and down Bowl trail, so it is less steep going down. As the trail signs say, please don’t bring dogs here. Dogs can’t climb ladders and it is unsafe for both the dogs and the humans who will inevitably end up carrying them.

harder than expected but not impossible, did it solo and i suggest not doing it alone as some parts are pretty scary. other than that, a great hike and so so so scenic and beautiful

Very fun trail. Climbing on the rungs is a little treacherous but fine. Moderate difficulty- never out of breath.

Great views of Sand Beach and much easier rung hike than Precipice. Take the extra loop to The Bowl - crystal clear valley lake

Amazing views! Did the precipice first so this one felt like a breeze! Still a bit challenging at some points! We went around 9 am on a nice misty fall morning and it wasn’t too busy

I didn’t know what to expect going into this trail and I’m glad I didn’t look into it too much. Definitely a tough hike going up but totally worth the view and I’m glad nobody fell backwards down the mountain

Great trail with some scrambling. It had rained an hour before we departed and the granite was still very grippy.

Absolutely awesome, fun climb, fantastic views, extended to Champlain mountain, great October day. A bit of a chill compensated with flaks filled with Michter’s :)

Great trail; beehive gets popular and there is a lot of waiting for people who struggle with some of the via ferrata.
