Really enjoyed this hike. I got on the trail about 1730 after work and only saw two other people, one being a through hiker. So it was pretty quiet and the hike up was long enough for me to have to work at it without any desire to turn back early. The view at the top was gorgeous and well worth the hike.

This hike has a lot of bang for its buck! A great workout and some interesting rock formations to see going up. Gorgeous from the outlook at the top. Short enough to do as an after work hike, but can keep going on the AT as long as you’d like. Definitely coming back for a sunset hike.

Great, quick trail. Nice views from the top. There are three lookout points. The third ledge is actually the one with the best view. I did this trail in under two hours.

Nice trail, it is not too steep so it is relatively easy hike up to a nice look out point. The views from the look out point are really nice. One of the better look out points IMO.
