It’s incline the entire trek up. Great for those wanting a cardio workout. Not great for anyone who wants a leisurely stroll. Don’t recommend going after rain for about 48 hours or serious sun is out. Great views up top. I took about 2.5 minutes of stopping to take in views on the way up. 30 minutes up and 22 minutes down (but I was hauling tail).

Hawk rock is always a challenge with a beautiful view. Took us about 30 mins up and 20 mins down this time. Please be considerate of other people at the top. People like to hog the rocks/view. Some people are too considerate or shy to tell others to move so please everyone just be courteous and kind to others.

HikingGreat!

Great hike, but if you’re not a regular hiker, it can be tough. Steep on some parts but doable. Someone suggested us to go check out the Eagle View point which was not to far from that. Turned out to be a nice view but trees interrupted the view. However, decided to take different and more steeper route down. It was very steep, incredibly rocky & must have nice shoes. The steeper route is not suitable for kids.

Good hike; moderate difficulty. Majority AT but took an unmarked trail on the return to catch the Cove Mountain Lookout!

Not a bad trail. Vista at the top is decent. Went counter-clockwise which I think was smarter. Get the rock steps out of the way. The only thing I would have liked to have seen are more trail markings on the backside of the loop.
