Did this trail in the tail end of a snowstorm that dumped 6-8 inches, made it challenging. There were high winds at the monument, great views all around when the snow finally stopped, and not a soul in sight. March 2017, park roads weren't cleared at 10 a.m. because it was still snowing, so I couldn't drive any further than Lake Marcia and hiked up from there. Great little hike with some stairs-like sections.

Fun hike with a group of Boy Scouts. Parking is close to the monument. Can be steep in spots but fairly easy overall.

I had a good hike. It was a bit challenging but it was a fun trail. I did monument trail but there are many more trails to explore.

It was great. Definitely need a hiking shoe on to do it. The jagged rocks were killing my feet thru my sneakers & the leaves covering the rocks this time of year left me unable to tell what i was stepping down on. Great weather and a great trail w/ beautiful views.
