A great walk around the pond. Very quiet and peaceful. I really enjoyed the boardwalks on the left side. It’s clear the trail is well cared for.

Nice trail - easy for the most part. Started early, so not crowded until near the end. People very friendly on trail.

Not moderate. Cliff trail is strenuous and risky though doable. Beautiful views

Absolutely beautiful hike. The foliage was absolutely amazing. Like many national parks, it was reactively busy but we did not experience much traffic on the trail itself (maybe 2 groups at max if we did experience any traffic). My biggest tips are hiking boots, water and sun protection. The ascend is lengthy and a little strenuous as you maneuver the landscape. Hiking shoes will offer the support, stability and extend your comfort walking. As you get to the ridges, which btw look scary due to its height but I promise it’s not that bad, you’ll want to have the sturdiest and grippiest shoes possible. Trails are very clear (most likely due to traffic). Enjoy!

Wonderful trail not too busy in the morning. Fog blocked a lot of early views for the pond. Overall great trail, nice granite stairs for most of the climb up and down.

They were enough people so you were not lonely, but not too many where are you hated to hike.

Very beautiful trail. Pretty easy for almost all of the trail. Does involve climbing on rocks in one section.
