Definitely not a beginners trail. Fantastic views at the summit, but some very steep sections of the trail at about the 3/4 point.
when you reach the ledges it becomes a piece of cake.

Hike was more difficult than expected, but can't beat the view from the top. Hard to believe this hike is in the same "moderate" category as something like Mt. Willard, but I'm far from experienced with regard to how the trails are categorized. Eight of us between the ages of 7 and 48 went out (none of us with any experience outside of typical family hiking), and we all came back tired and happy. Bugs were a nuisance from the parking lot to about a half mile in. Nonetheless, a great way to spend an afternoon!!!

Definitely had to work for the view! The view was incredible. Black flies were not!

The Mount Crawford trail is actually a section of the Davis Path. The first half mile is relatively flat, then it starts to get steeper. The trail is well maintained with lots of rock stairs along the way. 3/4 of the way up the trail opens onto rock with gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains. 360 degree views from the summit. Super windy today which kept the bugs at bay. Fantastic hike!
