  • This is an excellent trail with a phenomenal view. I would say this is a trail with moderate difficulty to hard difficulty depending on the weather. There was quite a bit of ice on the trail when we hiked it so it was slow going. The view was spectacular however and I can't recommend sticking it out enough.
  • Gotta climb to the top for sunrise. Absolutely spectacular. Have been to the top three times. My 10 and 13 year old boys have climbed up also.
  • Nice summit hike for the low mileage. Descent felt crowded, but our early start made the way up lovely with very few others on the trail.
  • Gorgeous scenery
