A fun day hike for sure with a good reward at the end with great views. We saw some rock climbers while hiking that looked like they were gonna stay the night on top. A nice hike for the region.

Have done this hike 3 times, and have never been disappointed. And while we've never had the trail to ourselves, I have never seen this hike crowded. On all three occasions, I can't recall there being more than a handful of people on the trial. The first mile up is a bear; quite steep and hard on the legs. But after that, it more or less levels out and you are treated to some ridge walking until you reach the rock outcrop of Big Schloss. Simply gorgeous, magnificent views.

The first part (..7 miles) is steep, and most of the trail is rocky. The views at the top, though, looking down into both WV and VA are about as great as they get.
