This hike/climb is difficult, but so worth the AMAZING view at the summit. But, it's a leg burner and will tax you. When you reach the sign that announces ,"end of maintained trail," keep going along the unimproved trail; it's still a decent trail. In short order you'll come to the climbing ropes which will take you up along sections of trail too steep and worn to climb without slipping. You'll definitely want good hiking boots if you're going to climb the ropes. These ropes will take you to a rocky/boulder area which is just below the summit. It's an easy 20 foot climb up the rocks and onto the summit where you're going to shout...."WOW!" Okay so you have to get down so take your time on the ropes going down because it can get slippery. Also, if you're afraid of heights or really out of shape this might not be the climb for you.

Beautiful hike with excellent viewpoints but definitely not an easy one. It took us over a few hours for the round trip. Good shoes and lots of water are a must and bug repellent is also a good idea.

I was VERY hesitant to do this hike after reading reviews online. It seemed like a lot of the beautiful pictures I had seen were from the summit and to get there, you'd have to use the system of ropes and ladders that start at the end of the maintained trail. I'm terrified of heights and was worried my fear would result in my friend and I putting in all the work to get so close just to have to turn around. But we went for it anyway and we're so glad we did! The hike shares a trailhead with the Marymere Falls trail. Once you see the giant rock (you can't miss it) there's a sign indicating the start of the Storm King Trail. From there, you're basically climbing straight up. It's a rough ~2 miles of switchbacks until you finally break clear and get your first glimpse of Crescent Lake. That view alone was worth the whole hike. You get a few more view points until you the reach the end of the maintained trail. There's a sign warning you that going further is at your own risk. We took one look at the ropes and decided to pass- we had already been well rewarded. The hike down was really hard on the knees. I'd recommend hiking poles if you have them and definitely a good pair of hiking boots. The trail is rocky and can be very slippery coming down.

Very nice trail. Lots of switchbacks, but the rate of ascent isn't bad. Bring your trekking poles, some slippery gravel spots and lots of tree roots. I stopped before the ropes and my son went all the way to the top. We both enjoyed the hike.

So we left from the Lake Crescent lodge and it was sunny, but half the way up Mount Storm King the clouds rolled in. We lingered at the top hoping they would clear but decided to go back down after about 15 minutes of waiting when it started to rain. So disappointed because we were really looking forward to the view!
