Good moderate trail with great views at the top. Hiked in February with snow on the trail. It is steep from the get go but levels out about a mile up. The bridge connecting the two peaks at the top is pretty cool! Also snow covered rocks were pretty slippery at summit so had to be careful.

We went counter clockwise and think that is the best way to go. It leaves the better parts of the trail at the beginning and end. Overall a nice trail with some good views.

Saw quite a bit of vehicle traffic up along the ridgeline while we were making camp and falling asleep. Not quite what we had expected due to that. The trails were in good condition and there were quite a few campsites.

This trail was amazing. The best we've been to yet. We didn't do the entire loop, but we did the 4 ish mile trail up to the view point and back which was incredible. It was a beautiful day outside but windy when we got to the top. I would love to come back again next summer when we can camp in one of the sites near the top. It was well worth the trip from NJ to spend the weekend visiting here.
