Awesome views and rock formations on the summit. Short out and back trail that is well marked. Some steep sections of trail.

This is rated wrong. Should be easy and not hard. The trail is not that steep and a typical Adirondack trail. Cool chimney and rocks. Keep going past the chimney to the summit for 360 degree views including Blue, Snowy and the High Peaks.

This hike was amazing. It is challenging, but I think a moderate rating would be more accurate than hard. The view was gorgeous when I went in the fall. The caves were my favorite part of the hike, so don't forget a flashlight!

It was beautiful but my group almost got struck by lightning and died. It took about 2 hours to hike up. The camping on top was perfect. It took about 45 minutes to slide down the mountain in the pouring rain. Scared me for life. Would hike again XD
