I did this hike today. Easy moderate hike. Great views from several offshoots heading up to the top and then amazing views from the ledges on the back(?). Definitely worth it to go the extra ,8 miles to the ledges. There are alot of leaves going up, I'd suggest poles or a walking stick for the way down since it can be slippery.

Moderately difficult, steep and slick at points, but great views on the little spot trails and the cliffs.

Short, sweet hike! It's a bit of a climb up some rocky areas. For the best views venture off the path a little bit when you can see large open rocks!

pretty steep for first mile or so to the peak. nice view off rocks in the middle and at the end. trail is rocky, kind of like a small ravine for most of the way, not a dirt path trail

Great short hike for the whole family. Beautiful views at the start of the trail and from the ledges with a couple lookout spots along the way. Bring bug spray!

For a novice hiker that I am, some parts were challenging, but not intimidating. The length was just about right for a good workout. Took my wife and me about 2.5 hours to complete. The view from the ledges was quite spectacular.
Warning: insect repellent is absolutely essential, and still expect to be bugged by the hordes of mosquitoes there (at least in June).
