Quick and rewarding hike but the rock steps will kick those legs into gear!!. Lots of beautiful little babbling streams makes this a very peaceful hike. I loved it. Take some more caution going down because those rocks can get slippery. The parking lot will fill up fast though even on a weekday so getting there early is a good idea. Definitely take the time to go to Spruce Peak and south on the LT to get some great views of Mansfield.
