Top notch, a good little hike with a big payoff

crazy sketchy if you don't like heights but amazing views! take North ridge down.

Great trail with beautiful views of the gorge and fall colors along the way. Started at the top of Cadillac Mountain (that’s where the GPS took us) and hiked down the mountain. Was tough going down and by the time we got to the bottom, we were exhausted and no way were heading back up. Found some other tourists from Alabama that drove us back to the top, thank you! My suggestion is to be prepared to either hire a shuttle service be prepared for 7.4 miles of climbing as it’s fairly steep steps and climb the whole way. Quads are still burning! Beautiful hike though!

Fantastic hike with great views of the ocean and several coves. If you’re adventurous, several great areas to go off trail and take some photos on the rocks. A few steep climbs down the rocks but not real difficult. Overall, a beautiful trail!

Great hike and easy trail to follow. Took our family of 5 (kids 16,14, and 12) and along the route are some great views of the bay and surrounding area. At the top, just past the summit is an unmarked trail leading down to a crashed plane from the 50s and the wreckage is still there. Very interesting but somber area. Overall, a great hike.

I would 100% do this hike again- we took a left turn when we got to shell pond and the trail was very easy to follow via this route. I don't recommend bringing a dog on this hike- once you near the top you are basically climbing up rocks. Spectacular view. The only downfall I have about this hike is it was very challenging to figure out how to get back to where we started from heading down the mountain the other side where the loop took us- there are absolutely no markings if it wasn't for this app we would have been completely lost.

I don't believe this trail should be rated as moderate- very easy... but definitely good if you are trying to go for an easy hike with a dog

Hiked it this weekend and found it to be a great trail with kids - wide path, not too much climbing and a nice open space with beautiful views at the top. We spent about an hour at the top while the kids played. The only tricky part was accessing the trail. I followed directions provided through the All Trails link and while it brings you to the right place, the trail is not marked. We parked on Bridge Street and walked down Picket Mountain Road (which is marked private) until we found the trail. The other thing to know is to stay left at the fork in the trail, through the gate.
