My husband and I tried to do the loop indicated on the All Trails map. Making it to the lookout point was relatively simple (west side of the loop). We then tried to finish the east side. This trail wasn't just poorly marked - it wasn't marked AT ALL! We had to use our phone's GPS and the app to estimate where the trail *would* have been. Once we found the connection to the east side, it was okay.

I do not recommend this full loop if you don't want to do some orienteering. The out-and-back to the lookout is great. We saw lots of families with happy children on the way to the lookout!

This was a relatively easy hike for me and the kiddos. We brought lunch and ate at a gorgeous lookout point.

The cliff trail is currently closed to protect wildlife. But the other trail was really nice, a bit muddy with all the rain we've had. Would definitely recommend if newer to hiking and want to see a truly fantastic view of the Adirondacks.

The trail is not well marked but it's pretty easy to follow still. There's some mud but nothing too, too crazy. The view at the top is amazing. Plenty of room for all to have a great view if you go during a busy time and have to share the summit. No steep inclines at all.
