It's about the journey, not the destination. The view up top is not overwhelming, at least not in the mid to late summer when I went. I just saw lo…

Beautiful hike, got there early morning at 7:15 and didn't get done till 1:15. The hike up can be long but the views are worth it. Hard on shins down

Beautiful views of the mountains and an even more vibrant and beautiful ecosystem on the mountain.

First mountain hike ever done, was totally worth it to see the top. Went to both of the viewpoints, it was amazing!
Jun 30, 2020
hiked to elevation of 6000ft, about a mile short of the lodge. remarkable trail!

Amazing. Whole family loved it. Chickens out with only .25 mile left to top.

Awesome trail! Worth the hike up, and the way down is definitely easier.

5 hours with breaks.
Feb 22, 2020
Distance is up and back. Really snowy and icy on the way up. Clear day, beautiful views from the top. Trip down was muddy but much less snow and ice.

Turned around due to ice and no spikes.

This trail did not disappoint. We even had a close encounter with a black bear!
Jul 26, 2019
Going just up to the lodge is disappointing—did the extra 0.7 miles to Myrtle Point and the views were totally worth it.

It was an amazing trail! Getting to see Arch Rock, Alum Cave, and the cliff tops of Mt. Le Conte was just breathtaking. Fair warning, this is the hard

with AJ, Tom, Cole, Nikhil, Mike, Josh, Paul running up, was with just Mike for most

Beautiful hike with nice views. Slightly icy on the approach to the Bluffs. Had hoped to go to Cliff Tops but got a late start so only went to Bluffs.

Great views up with plenty of streams and falls. The end bluff gave a nice view out high in the mountains
Dec 18, 2018
Beautiful trail. I can see why it’s one of the favorites in the parks. Follows a river for most of the time, plenty of views, and the bluff was gre…

Make sure to take the extra 0.2m mi up to “cliff tops” - worth the awesome view!

Beautiful stroll, with a little extra kick hiking up toward Mount LeConte. Would love to go all the way up to the lodge sometime! Beautiful views.
