Fairly easy 4K footer. Took the Webster-Jackson Trail up to the summit, which is quite exposed (and therefore very windy/chilly). On the way down, we opted to add a little mileage by taking the Webster Cliff Trail to the Mizpah Cutoff and Crawford Path. Easier descent, and you'll pass right by the Mizpah Spring Hut, which is a great place to stop and have lunch.

Great hike, the bog near the summit is beautiful. The trail crew people are fun. Awesome views. It stormed on our way down, the rocks were slippery and it was muddy.

A wonderfully challenging hike for my first 4,000 footer! Lots of rock scrambling. The views from the top were absolutely stunning and having options for our decent made it all the more adventurous and inspiring. We ended up taking Webster Cliff to the Mizpah Cutoff and heading down Crawford Path to get back to Rt 302. If you're feeling saucy, hang a right up Crawford Path and bag Mt. Pierce while you're at it before heading back down. :) It would add 1.6 additional miles to be overall hike.

Great hike for all levels! Not too steep and a moderate rise in elevation throughout the hike. Beware of wet conditions.

Great hike, but the trail was so wet and muddy due to the rain making it more difficult and scary where you have to scramble up rocks. The trail can get pretty steep in some sections and it's all uphill, but it's so green and pretty!....and waterfalls and river crossings are always fun!

What a hike! It was in the 60s lower 70s and had a lot of clouds! Honestly the weather made it cool and no rain, the trail was still very slippery though. Lots of little waterfalls, well marked with blue. Towards the top was extremely steep with rock scrambles but when I got to the top it was well worth this scary experience. Gorgeous views for miles from every angle! Definitely one of the most gorgeous mountains. Would not recommend in bad weather, and if you are scared of physically climbing up to the summit although doable.
