Gorgeous views. Moderate climb of 1200 ft. The trail is quite crowded but the views at the top are fantastic. It took us (2 adults and 8 year girl) about 3 hours round trip, not including the 30 or so minutes we spent at the top.

A Goldilocks hike: just the right amount of distance, elevation gain, time. Can't go wrong. Only downside is its popularity.

I would really give it a 5 star rating, but SO many people were there, but yet that is really expected with a lake and what not. But great view worth the ass kicking!

Was there yesterday, August 4, 2014. It's a great hike, we continued on towards East Peak. Feels further than 1.9 miles to the Ledge. it is a very popular trail as stated in all the reviews. It is disappointing that people insist on signing their names on the trail markers. Also, we picked up about 8 water bottles dropped on the trail. Also, if you bring your dog, bring water for them too. Great hike would do it again.

This trail is crowded and very popular but for good reason. The view at the top is amazing... I felt like I could see for miles upon miles! I would insist coming early if you want to enjoy your hike in some sort of peace. We started around 8am and the parkinglots were not full yet... but we crossed paths with alot of people, kids, and dogs. :) Its a good trail for beginners and people who don't hike very often. The mass amounts of people are the only drawback. Keep that in mind if you go!

Way too many people on a Sunday morning. During the week would be the time to go. However, it's very pretty and a good workout. Lots of dogs of all ages and friendly people! I would do this hike again but it wouldn't be my first choice because of the big crowds. Definitely go as early as possible if you go on a weekend!

Decent hike with a fantastic view!! just a little bit too crowded to feel you have "escaped from the city," but its still beautiful. At least there will always be someone you can ask to snap a photo of yourself for you :)

Quick easy hike with a well maintained trail and a great view from the ledge, though as it's been said super busy at all times. Good if you're looking to kill a couple hours but still want a decent summit.
