Yea, my 5 year old did Alum Cave in tennis shoes....maybe they mean the dinner at the Lodge is dangerous, gave me heartburn once :wink:


The Alum Cave squirrels are pretty aggressive, that might be an objective danger we haven't considered.


Yeah, I guess that's extreme for the East Coast! I though The Precipice Trail would have made it on there before Alum Cave.

Or even Mt. Katahdin's knife edge?

There are hundreds of trails more dangerous in New England/New York than Alum Cave, and several in the south worse, but I agree none of those trails have the Rabid Vampire Squirrels of Le Conte!!!

And ironically I bet many would blanch at hiking the Kings Road nevertheless. I don't find that silly at all.

In terms of 'hiking' I think Stolby-Style trumps all.

Completely mesmerizing. I understand these folks have been doing this for a very, very long time, as in generations!

They may just be the boldest hikers in the world.

They may be bold but they aren't old. A kid falling off the rocks is pretty terrible.
