This was a very rewarding hike. Not for faint of heart. It took me about 5 hours round trip but I spent about 45 minutes on the summit. Once you get to the top be sure to hike all the way to the end of the trail.

Great trail! Straight up, but worth it when you get to the top. Made it up in about an hour and a half, but had to stop a few times to catch my breath and drink some water. Also ran into a bear cub! No sign of mama though.

Last climb from Bald Knob to the top is strenuous. The views from Bald Knob are simply breathtaking.

We are in our early 60's and this was a ball buster for us in the summer heat and humidity. It's a steady incline up rock steps and paths for 3.5 miles (110 stories - 12,000+ steps) that you think can't get much tougher, and then they do...and then they get even tougher near the summit. Really well maintained trail that is as tough on the descent as it is going up. You never get a break. The views are magnificent! We watched a rainstorm roll in across the mountains and then soak us as we sat on the peak. Looking forward to hiking this one again in winter.

a love-hate type of Trail this Trail is straight up
