Description
Waypoints (0)

From the parking lot, don't head straight into the forest as that's not the correct trail; instead walk towards the road, turn right, and walk to the end of the road. The trail starts by going up a bunch of stone steps. This trail is all switchbacks and sometimes a little steep. Make sure to bring water and a little snack to enjoy at the top while you sit back and enjoy the view. Going back is easier as it’s pretty much all down hill. Just be sure to wear some good hiking boots or a shoe with good traction as there is a lot of rocks on the trail. Best to go on a weekday to avoid crowds.

I could not find the trail shown in everyone's pictures. I was hoping to see the cliffs but i walked down the white trail not sure where i was going.

Saturday evening in time to see the sunset on the Cliffs,then 2+ miles up to Edward Gravely Shelter, to enjoy the nearly full moon. Moonlit hike back to parking lot was A+. Almost 7.5 miles round trip.

Lovey hike. The incline hits you as soon as you start the trek on this portion of the AT. Very windy, but really cool at the top. The windy trail makes all of thee effort to get to the top worthwhile!

HikingGreat!

Got lost in the beginning and looked at other reviews to find the trail head to the cliffs. Turn right out of the parking walk to the end you’ll see a yield sign straight across you will see rocks that look like steps almost and that’s it! It was a great hike and the views were so amazing. 10/10 I plan on going back again for sure!

Trail is well marked. Rocky and leaf covered, which can make it slippery, so have good sneakers or hiking boots on. On Saturday at 3 pm it was very crowded as people were going to see the sunset.

HikingGreat!Rocky

This was a great hike yesterday with a 2 y/o, 3 y/o, 8y/o, and 9 y/o. There are many stops along the way for a rest and it did not get really steep until the last two switchbacks before hitting the top. The only downfall we found was the lack of bathrooms at the parking area.

Awesome easy trail, not as crowded as I expected for a Sunday morning. The view was great and so were the people. Definitely on the list to do again!
