Wow, beautiful but the guides rate it as easy. Maybe for some but not for us & we are in pretty good shape. 3 miles with the last 1/2 mile pretty much straight up. BUT once you get to the top the views are amazing!

We went clockwise, not knowing any better, and it was very hard with our two toddlers (2 and 4), but the boys did really well, and we made it about a full mile into the climb before turning back, considering it a success considering we...More

We parked in the covered bridge parking lot and walked to the trail head, not realizing there was another parking lot directly across from the trail head. Not a big deal, it added maybe .2 miles to out total hike. I found the beginning of...More
