Great hike with some challenging sections, great views in spots and not a ton of people when we went.

With information from this app/site we were able to follow the loop very easily. The views were great and we liked this hike a lot. We added the trip to the lake onto this and was very disappointed and angry. Trash and glass were everywhere! We were very concerned for our dog and small child. It’s a shame to see such a beautiful place destroyed.

Fun hike! Took about 3 hours total. Beautiful views at the top. If hiking with a dog especially, start by walking along 9W rather than under the bridge to avoid a difficult rocky patch on the downhill. The first markers to follow will be white with red dots and then to blue. Also keep an eye out for a line of rocks placed in the trail that indicates that the trail is turning away from the river; we completely missed it and went about 10 minutes further along the water than we were supposed to.

Short and sweet, stunning views from the summit. Some light rock scramble, but very manageable :)

Agree with the person who said to park at 288 mine rd — the coordinates given by alltrails takes you to a lot that is closed off by a gate with a sign that says “closed for the season

Great family hike (ages 9-15 all experienced, but doable for all ages). So you have options here. The parking area on Mine Rd is small with room for maybe 10 cars. We could not find the 2 trail entrance points. One is clear by the info kiosk and the other further up Mine Rd could not be spotted. We were advised to do the loop clockwise and that's what we did. As you head up the trail from the kiosk look for the blue blazes and take the one that veers off to the left (I'd say it is about 75 feet up past where you can pick up a walking stick.) That takes you straight up over many rock scrambles and somewhat challenging little climbs. Near the top we had some trouble getting up over the final steep climb. Instead we found a way around the left of it by hugging the rock edge and then getting to the more flat slabs at the top. A bit further and you are at the beautiful tribute to the fallen. Really breathtaking and meaningful. Views 360 for days. Leave your rock or memento and then head past the pile to continue on the blue trail along the slabs and eventually down. Use the ropes to descend as needed and follow blue all the way back to the kiosk. So your choice is: do you want to do the scramble and steep climbs or not? If not, just head right from the kiosk and come up the right side and then backtrack down. It reminded us of Pratt Rock and Storm King Mth/Butter Hill where you have a challenging start and then the descent around the loop is easier and you say to yourself, why didn't we just do the easy route there and back? Accept the challenge and go for it, but know you have two options! With multiple stops it took the fam about 2.5 hours to complete.
