Great trail on a clear Thursday morning - we were the only ones, along with our 50lb aussiedoodle pup. Had been a little worried about whether he’d be able to make it up the rocks but he did great! No trash service in the area so make sure to be prepared to pack everything alllll the way out with you (like dog poop, lol). Also as mentioned in previous reviews, no water sources on the trail so bring enough to make it up and down on a hot day. Great view at the top for lunch!

Hit this one after the big schloss, as it’s right across the road. Straightforward hike through the woods, well marked. Trail starts off taking you up a short ridge and down into a small forested valley. From there it’s straight up, it quite literally takes you straight up the ridgeline (there is only one switchback). You’ll come to two “scrambles” which are easy to accomplish for the average hiker. The summit is hard to miss, you will reach a point where it levels off after the incline and you’re there. There’s a few spots to camp and a rocky overlook of the WV side. This isn’t 360 views but just as nice as big schloss, less crowded too!

hiked up this trail after Big Schloss. definitely felt the walk up - parts were steep but not horrible. there’s a rock scramble at the top that wasn’t too difficult. the view is decent, but not the 360 you get on Big Schloss. ran into another group that had to turn back because their dog couldn’t make it up the rock scramble, so you might want to consider leaving pets at home for this one

THE TRAIL *DOES* REACH THE SUMMIT! :) Commenting bc I met some folks out there today who echoed what I see in comments here. After the two steep rock scrambles, you will reach another that seems like the end of the road. Climb that one and go straight another few yards. :) you will be richly rewarded!

For a shorter hike, this is still a challenge! There are some steep hiking intermixed with gradual switchbacks. The views aren't the same 360 panoramas like on Big Schloss, but are fantastic vistas none-the-less. Near the top, there are several steep rock scrambles that I was not expecting, but thoroughly enjoyed. Unfortunately, there's some ice hiding between the boulders so footing is a bit treacherous this time of year. Some shoe spikes or trekking poles are recommended. Be aware that the AllTrails app will constantly notify you that you're "Off Route" because the route does not line up with the actual trail - no worries just follow your yellow blazes! Also, the trail does NOT take you to the summit/peak of the mountain. There's no trail to the summit that I saw, nor any views once I got up there. The best views are about a 0.1-0.2 miles or so before the summit.

I backpacked to an amazing campsite by overlook. It is very steep so tough trail even though it's short. 2 rock scrambles by overlook. 2nd one is tougher. same parking lot as big schloss so do that hike also. big schloss has better views. no water sources

this is harder on the muscles than big schloss. the rock scrambling is not dangerous though, it almost feels like climbing stairs, so kids (mine are 3, 6, and 8) will love the outdoor playground (for reference, I think billy goat trail section A is dangerous). the view is not as pretty as big schloss, but the trail is worth it! parking is limited
