I thought this was beautiful in terms of the views on the way up and from the top. I also liked the view of Bald Peak from the summit.

Steep, but the views are very rewarding. If you go in the late afternoon, you have the whole mountain to yourself.

Not a moderate trail but the hike and views were spectacular. You can take take dogs but there are some tough climbing and scrambling sections that gave our 10 yr Aussie (and 3 yr Aussie for that matter) a bit of a hard time. Wouldn't take them again.

Love this trail, but would rate it closer to moderate. Lots of rock climbing! And many stunning views.

Super fun trail, especially if you hit Parkman, then Gilmore, then Sargent. The peak of Sargent is absolutely beautiful.

It can be pretty challenging in spots. Pretty steep elevation changes with lots of rock, but it's well worth it.
