Beautiful trail and the view was gorgeous! Extremely muddy and icy with the weather change but worth it. Certain areas were steep, but overall great hike!

Excellent hike. The trail is steep enough to keep it interesting, but not so steep that it is difficult. The view from the overlook is incredible. I found the trail to be well marked in most spots (particularly at junctions). It was a perfect day for a hike and we saw maybe 7 other groups of hikers over the entire trail (might be because we started later in the afternoon). The overlook had lots of space to spread out so you don't have to share a small space with others to see the view.

Amazing view at the top. Hike up had some ups and downs, but nothing too strenuous. Trail is rocky and rooty, but again, not terrible. We went with our two kids (12 and 7) and they loved it.

Decent hike. Difficulty is more advanced beginner than moderate. The views were nice and the trail is not very crowded.

Beautiful forest trail leads up to a gorgeous view. It was raining today and cloud cover was magical. Good for all hiking levels, small rock scrambles but not difficult at all. We had the trail to ourselves for the most part
