awesome hike, rocky and steep on the way up but boy is the pay off worth it when you get to the ledge. Jurassic views!!

Amazing views from the ledge, decent from Panther. Had heavy rains this week so the trail was like walking up a stream bed. Most people who do this trail only go as far as the ledge, so it gets really quiet once you pass them.

First off...gorgeous views from the Giant Ledge and a couple decent views on Panther Mountain. I was disappointed in how people using this trail do not respect it. Trail was packed on my way out heard a loud noise..a guy was using a drone on Giant Ledge..I get it this is the annoying world we live in today but I wish people would leave their loud obnoxious toys at home and just sit and enjoy nature. There is a porta potty in the parking area and certain people using the trail seem to feel that is ok to just throw their garbage in a pile next to the toilet....I was appalled by the amount of trash as well as this mentality.

This is an amazing, but fairly difficult hike. The view at the top is incredible. Bring extra water, you're gonna sweat.
