Did this hike towards the end of May. It was a great hike, no views from up top due to fog and rain. It was still a great hike, and the caves were awesome. Lots to explore!

This is by far one of my favorite ADK hikes with the added bonus of having an awesome cave for splunking enthusiasts.

Awesome hike. Don't be in a rush, there is a lot to explore. Steep climb but good footing and pretty short.

Incredible hike. Not very long, but I recommend setting aside plenty of time to explore the caves and climb around. The wildlife is great. We saw a beautiful salamander and walked right up to a deer. Do a lot of exploring. Thx nature.

This is a fun hike. Challenging but not too hard for kids. Lots of cool rocks and things to climb on. I will do it again.

This was always my favorite hike to go on when I was a child...I loved the caves, back then they were filled with ice and it was really neat to touch the cold walls in the middle of summer...I wish to do this hike again someday.

Great trail. It's getting fairly worn in, steep at the end. BE VERY CAREFUL at the top, there are holes, pits and sudden drop offs everywhere. There are caves and they are a lot of fun, but only if you know what you're doing. We usually go up to explore the caves for the day.
