Hardest hike I did in the Park. The end is scrambling up the Chimney, which was exhilarating and provided an "Awe" moment.

A local took me all the way to the peak of Chimney Tops. The view from the lookout point was good, but the view from the peak was breathtaking.

500000% worth the steep hike up if you end up going on the actual chimney tops. Totally not worth it if you don't.
