The hike to the top is pretty, it'll take about an hour and a half. What makes it worth it is the Overlook views of Lake Willoughby.

Read a review that stated that the view from atop this hike was like being in Costa Rica. Have to admit, the assessment was pretty good . The fairly challenging hike was worth it!

I'm scared of heights but love to hike - this hike was totally great. One thing to know, there is no real "payoff" spot - when we reached the top we were kind of like "huh?" you could keep going and see more - but...More
