This is a full day (12 hours) 15-mile round trip from the Garden parking lot. Great hike and memorable experience!

This was a perfect day trip from Johns Brook Lodge. It is strenuous and takes much longer than the mileage would suggest. There is a lot of up and down along the ridge line, but our middle-school boys loved the challenge. There was a lot of scrambling, climbing cables, descending ladders and down climbing rocks. Gothics is not a place for people who don't like exposure, but if you have a head for heights and a sense of adventure it is a great trip.
