Fun little hike; stopped off with the boyfriend and dog on our way to a cabin. The trail is rocky, which we liked. There are three rock outcroppings with a nice view at the top. Best part was we didn't encounter a single soul on this trail, even though the parking lot it shares with Big Shloss was packed!

Trail seems to go forever up and up and up and then at the end you go up LOL I enjoyed it

Great hike. Would not suggest for families. The rock scramble at the end can be a bit tricky. The views are well worth the effort!!!

This trail definitely lived up to its rating of "difficult" but is a great hike. The views from the top are exactly what you would expect from the valley. Glad I brought my stick. There's a nice spot at the top for camping for those who are inclined to backpacking.

Well marked trail and gorgeous views. Slightly more difficult than Big Schloss due to steep terrain and rocky path but still a short and relatively easy hike.

Had a nice hike! Took our time so it took about an hour up and we didn't even reach the top. Lots of snow still but awesome views. Trail was muddy and snowy but manageable. Will definitely try again when the slush is gone.

Great hike. We tackled the summit on a cold and snowy day. Temp was around 15 degrees and already 6" of fresh powdery snow. Yaktrax worked well in the fresh powder. Rock scrammbles were a challenge in the snow but very rewarding after we reached the top. Highly recommend on a clear day for great views both east and west.

It was a really good hike, like many of the other reviews say it was closer to 4 miles than 3.1. However it was really no trouble for my two girls ages, 10 and 12 with frequent breaks. Everyone really liked the "rock climbing" towards the top. Several good scenic with the first about half a mile up. Definitely recommend.

Did the trail from the bottom. Parking at Wolf Gap Recreation area. Would agree that the trail felt slightly longer than 3.1Miles from this point. Still good parking and we thought the views were great. We stayed the night at the top which is highly recommended. Good fire ring and stone bench.
