HikingGreat!

One of my favorite hikes!!! I want to do it every year! I hiked it in 2019 and 2020 however, this year, My friends and I camped out! Very fun! Would highly recommend this trail! There are two paths to take both are around similar difficulties but one of them you have a cave so if you’re bringing a tent then I would recommend taking the other trail. I’ve done both trails and the one with the cave is cooler and you hit Mount Little Jackson too I believe but if you have a hefty bag it might be a tight squeeze.

There were a lot of people on the trail. It was challenging at parts, but it was so worth it once you reach the top

A challenge but fun and so worth it. Lots of rock scrambling and climbing as well as some steep drop offs which make for amazing views but can be nerve wracking for those scared of heights. At the top you can swim in the pond and pick blueberries.

Absolutely wonderful! This is definitely a challenging hike and worth every bit of it. I recommend starting at the Loop Trail and finishing with the slightly less challenging Brook Trail. The views from the top are breathtaking.

This is an amazing trail! Within 30 minutes you start to get great views of the valley. The "lemon squeeze" is a super fun feature that requires the use of hand rails to twist and squeeze your way up through the rocks. There's plenty of rock hopping, scrambling, and ridge walking to make this trail entertaining. Definitely technical and worth every bit.

Short and somewhat challenging climb to amazing views. One of these days I’m going to take a dip in that little lake.
