Enjoyed the hike and the view at top. The last part of the trail is quite rocky but manageable.

I only hiked this trail to the summit of Eisenhower and then continued my journey onwards to Mount Pierce and Mount Jackson. So my review is solely for ascending.

I left the trail head around 8:45 and it was cloudy and misty and cloudy. It was very steep in many areas with rock "staircases".

Very muddy as others mentioned

My second trip. Good, challenging day hike. Muddy in spots.

The trail as others mentioned is quite muddy. There are small streams that run through most part of the trail making it muddy. I highly recommend wearing hiking boots. The first 15-20 minutes are easy flat hike and after that it is is gradual ascend. I am in average shape and I reached the summit in 3 hours. Some hikers I met on the way hiked in 2 hours. The descend was easy but since it was muddy and slippery in some parts, it took us 2 hrs 15 mins to get back. There is a small parking lot which gets full fast, but you can easily park on the side of the road. It was super windy once we got above tree line, so we could not stay for more than 5 minutes on the summit. It was such a bummer since the views are gorgeous. When we hiked, there were very few people on the trail, maybe because it was so cloudy and windy or maybe because it was July 4th. Dress in layers and wear hiking boots and you should be good to go! Highly recommend!

Extremely muddy to the point where it made coming down harder than going up. Beautiful views at the top, though.

The first 15 minutes is very easy and then it's steep from there. I put my spikes about 1 mile from the summit, although one hiker didn't put spikes on at all. The sky was crystal clear so I had great views of Washington, Monroe, and Jefferson and could see for miles past! The cairns on the summit were amazing!! Fairly windy up top, so you might want face gear if you want to last more than 10 minutes at the summit. The trail was moderately trafficked and it took me 2.5 hours to go up and 1.5 hour to get down. (I ran down pretty much).
