With a recent recovering broken foot I have to be very careful where I walk. We took the Toll Road up and hiked to the peek, what amazing views. The fall foliage is just beginning to turn which made the trip extra special.

We went for hiking in August and the weather was perfect. We went up till the top and the view was breathtaking. There are different trails available. It is a bit challenging but the view at the top is worth all the hard work!

It's a steep drive to the top. Glad my husband was driving in a Jeep! It was an overcast day, but we still enjoyed doing it and we're able to take some great family photos. Not quite sure if we went to the very top. A little confusing. Ask questions at the entrance before you make the drive.

Mile long trek on the ridge atop of this mountain. Lots of places to sit and relax with our packed lunch. We hiked up this 4,000+ footer and enjoyed the 360 degree view. Good workout going up, across and down! It's a busy place but good reason for it. Found it best to go DOWN the sunset ridge trail. This... More

The hike across the mountain is quite challenging for someone who isn't used to it but views are spectacular! Leave yourself enough time to enjoy the summit as it gets somewhat crowded. They close the gate at the bottom of the Toll Road at 5 pm but there is a key st the Inn so don't fret about being locked... More

We visited in the summer, took the chair up to the top, brought a bottle of wine with some cheese and crackers and enjoyed a wonderful view.

The gondola was not running so we had to take the quad chair. The ride was fun and the view was breath taking. Than walked up the road(1 mile) to the very top. More people driving up to the top than taking the lift. Which is understandable because the roundtrip chairlift ride cost $25.

We have hiked and ridden in car up this mountain for 7 years running and never tire of the view on the way up or at the top. If you have little ones inexperienced in hiking or you yourself are; then ride the toll road up and hike across to the summit. More experienced hikers will enjoy the moderate to... More
