This is a trail of 1.2 miles in length and 350 feet of elevation gain. Though the trail is not very long or doesn't have much vertical elevation gain, it is the toughest and roughest trail in the park. Those famous boot eating rocks are found the entire length of this trail. On a clear day there are great views at many points along the trail. The trail also connects to the Overlook Trail to reach Hawk Point which affords the finest views.
Comfortable hiking shoes and water.

"There have been joys too great to be described in words, and there have been griefs upon which I have dared not to dwell, and with these in mind I must say, climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are naught without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end."
