This might be my favorite loop of all time. But beware: the AT is still covered in snow and mostly unbroken save for animal tracks in a few places. I lost the trail in a rocky section where the blazes were covered in snow, but was able to bushwhack back. If anyone happens to see a pair of red microspikes off the trail (about halfway up on the AT side) when the snow melts, they’re mine! Pls do me a solid and leave them where they are or move them someplace more sheltered nearby. The snow took them as sacrifice and I will be back to retrace my steps for them in the spring!!

Excellent hiking. Lots of rock scrambling and climbing on the AT. Not for beginners on that section. Winter trail is much easier going up the mountain as it’s a more gradual incline. A very enjoyable hike with rewarding views.

Super fun hike and boulder scramble with great views of the Lehigh River and valley. Suggest going counter clockwise to go up the rocks.

Enjoyed it. But be prepared that 20% of the trail is very difficult and not moderate (would not recommend for casual hikers/small kids). Well marked and good views. A fun adventure.

Terrifying, but a lot of fun. Definitely gets the adrenaline pumping. This was our second time...my kids are gluttons for punishment.

I’ve hiked a lot and this made me the most scared, but I still enjoyed. Definitely go right to start. I would NOT bring young children.
