Great hike. Just a tad busy if you hike in the afternoon.
Good trail, good view at the top, but it can get super crowded when it is nice outside
This is one of my favorite short hikes. With clear blue skies and very low humidity on 4/8/17 the views were exceptional!! The loop trail from Hawksbill Gap parking area offers the best scenery.
This was an amazing hike! It is a great hike full of very nice views but not very difficult so it made for a nice quick starter hike. I definitely plan on doing this hike again this spring!
goid hike but short.
Great loop. Nice climb with amazing views at the top and then a rocky decent.
You really avoid the crowds by coming up the AT. A few rock scrambles but otherwise straightforward terrain. Summit includes a shelter and a great lookout point. My 6 year old rocked it.
great views and a lot of varying terrain to keep you on your toes
beautiful scenery, plenty of wildlife it's a great hike for the family.
