Great hike. It's very up so be prepared. At top of cliffs keep pets and Children from edge. The rock formations are phenomenal!

Good view at the top. Lots of roots and mud. Pretty easy hike. Whoever was lucky enough to steal my ray bans I accidentally left and went back for... awesome for you.

First we got lost and went a lot farther than we had to. The sign for where you turn for Good Luck Cliffs was very small and high up. Do not pass the larger of the bridges, its about 20 feet long the second of the real bridges. There are bears around just to warn. Last of all it is very wet the ground is very mushy, I thought the people in the reviews went after it rained but that's not true it's just very wet, and very steep!

Beautiful hike. Starts mild but very slushy. Wet rocks and roots make for a slippery trek - definitely advise wearing hiking boots. A good walking stick or trekking pole is helpful - especially on the descent. We did the extra little bit to see Good Luck Lake. That was nice but you can't really get to the edge of the lake due to the surrounding marsh. We saw a few orange newts and a tiny orange frog. Other than that we didn't come across any critters. The cliff rocks at and near the top are really cool. And the view at the top makes it worth the climb.

Great hike, stay to right after you pass first snowmobile bridge. This will bring you to the summits of the cliffs. Really muddy on the travel up and down so wear a waterproof hiking boot. At the top of its populated not much room for privacy, the look out are is not that large. I hiked at 5pm and no one their. Great short hike with a rewarding view.

Decent hike as long as you don't miss the turn to start the ascent, trail sign is above eye level
