lots of switchbacks...the views were not worth it, in my opinion. make sure to take a companion if you are not in the best shape.

If you are good wandering off the beaten path, the waterfalls are amazing! If you're going to the summit, the last 1.3ish miles is a bit of a Sysiphus-esque journey and I really didn't feel like the summit was worth that last leg. It's cool if you're planning to camp at the summit overnight BUT the thought of that last stretch with a 30 plus pound pack confirms that I'd never camp there.

going up that road was The NeverEnding hell but the view from the top was heavenly the cloud coverage after an early-morning storm stayed all day the clouds that come and go over the top was amazing "cloud city"

Okay, the falls hallow trail off of Elliot's knob is one of my favourite trails. It's beautiful and a mild hike to some nice waterfalls. However the actual trail to the knob is brutal. It's about 4.6 miles one way, and it's about 230 flights up. Yes, there is a nice view and a cool abandoned watch tower at the top, but was it worth the endless agony, probably not.
