I loved this hike, my beagle/basset, niece and I hiked it yesterday. The view is breathtaking!
we love this hike and the incline at the end makes you appreciate the top..
Great trail to start the spring/summer season. Once you get the to the turn off (blue markers and clearly marked) for the cliffs it turns into an advanced hiker trail. As of 9 April 2017 micro spikes aren't needed but come in handy on the trip down. Parking is clearly marked and was not busy.
I decided to hike this trail on a warm day in February. The trail was clearly traveled and was easy to follow with the white snow underfoot. The incline does increase as you get closer to the cliffs.
Couldn't find the path to the summit with 4 inches of snow on the ground, no foot path to follow. Still a nice hike.
Beautiful and challenging as well! Great for dogs. Trail needs better markings. Trail marked better on the way down. Quite soggy until you start heading up. Well worth it!
got married here the beginning of October
Awesome hike. Marking were a little unclear, make sure you turn right and follow specific trail to reach summit. My girlfriend and I ended up hiking an extra 6 miles. Great view at the summit though.
Took the lake trail, lots of overgrowth. Turned up to the summit trail after that. Top is steep but doable. View is nice, but if you've ever been to places like Snowy Mt., not fantastic.
Great hike and amazing view
This was an average trail. It was difficult as it was steep for the last half but no scrambles or such. The summit is small and offers a view, but it didn't say wow. Not marked aside from the trailhead sign. If you come to a foot bridge on the trail you have missed the turnoff for the summit. It was quite muddy from the rain the past couple of days. Did notice that the leaves are already starting to change color.
Great trail! Take the fork to the right after you pass the first lake, it takes you past the small waterfalls and brings you to the summit of the mountain, wear good shoes.
The climb up the cliffs was difficult at times but we'll worth it for the beautiful view. It is definitely on my to do list for this fall.
