I was trying to figure out why this trail is labeled "moderate" instead of "easy," when I fell on a slippery rock. It had rained the night before and the whole trail is comprised of giant slabs of rock that were very slippery. It rained on my way back and it was slow moving. The top was less impressive than views of the monument from the trail.

Was originally planning to do the Monument Trail but didn't realize that the parking near the Monument didn't open until 8. So instead I hiked in from the Appalachian Trail parking area and then back to my car. Pretty rocky section of the AT but great views as you get closer to the Monument, especially from the viewing platform and the Monument itself.
