Nice hike. Short but sweet in the sense that, because its steep you get a good workout. Nice views at top.

Quick but challenging hike with great views. Steep at times but not too bad. we took the short route up which is steeper but came down the long route. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Love this hike. This year we packed lunch and sat by Heart Lake, also one of our favorite spots. There are cabins to rent and a gift/equipment shop. Add to the hike by hiking to Rocky Falls!

Short little hike with a great view from the top, but get their early to ensure you get a parking space, like 8:00 am on a weekend. Also I would suggest the long way up and the short way down otherwise it is very rocky and steep. Wear hiking shoes and have a great time.

This trail was moderate- short and somewhat steep in places. The view from the top was totally worth it and the trail (we did the loop) was very well marked. I would recommend this hike!

Liked that it was marked. I think I reached the summit but was not sure. If there is a marking then I didn't reach it but it looked like it based on my the info I had. Great for someone not used to this type of climb.

We arrived around 10:00 am on a Saturday and were turned around at the entrance and told to park 1 mile back down the road. Hiking back we took the route around Heart Lake, though we were disappointed the way did not really offer views of the lake. Somehow we ended up on the the way to Rocky Falls and... More

Just spent Memorial Day Weekend in the High Peaks region with the family. We were a large group of 15 ranging in age from 3-70. We decided to take on this hike as it was recommended by some as a great family hike. Although we had some hiking experience, we were way over our heads here. We took the short... More

Let me start of by saying i am not in any way a hiker, but did some smaller mountains. I read the reviews and thought it would be fun. There are two ways to get up there, short hike and long hike. People said the average climb was 45 min short way and 1.5 hour long way. That may be... More
