We had a great time on this trail! It can however be very confusing. Luckily I found a website that walked us through the whole thing with pictures and all. I would recommend sticking to it to a T if you don't want to get lost. Here's the link.

Great trail. My four and 11 year old did good on this trail. I felt like it was longer than 2.7 miles. We hiked both loops and it took us exactly 2 hours.

This trail is awesome! The trail itself is not difficult to traverse, it is just a climb from the start. Several rock and wood step areas and many places you are walking the edge. I did this trail with my 10 & 14 year olds. They were both able to handle with no problem. Arch rock and staircase is very cool, the bluffs are gigantic, but the views are spectacular. If you get to the lodge, go further up to clifty top.....at the top take the trail to the right. BEAUTIFUL!! We made a day out of this trail. We didn't get started until 9:30am and got to the top about 1pm. We made several stops along the way for photo ops and a drink and had a quick snack at the bluffs. We stayed at the lodge area at mount le conte about an hour before heading back down. Down is harder on your legs as it's a constant pounding.....all the way down. The skies/fog had cleared on the way down, so again we took several pics. We took about 3hrs coming back and again had a snack break at the bluffs. ENJOY!!

Great day hike with varying elevation changes and terrain!

I had the day to myself so I decided to try some harder hikes, this was a workout for sure. It became foggy somewhere around an elevation of 4500 feet so I couldn't see the views, but the lodge at the top was interesting. Only saw one person on the way there, saw quite a few people on the way back.

Great hike with the family! We went on both trails, total distance is a little over 2 miles.

We saw a few bears along the way.

Great trails and beautiful falls! Loved that most of the hike was under the shady canopy of the trees. Only downfall was NO BATHROOMS ANYWHERE so you if you have to go, be prepared to water a tree.
