The hike to the top is pretty, it'll take about an hour and a half. What makes it worth it is the Overlook views of Lake Willoughby.

Read a review that stated that the view from atop this hike was like being in Costa Rica. Have to admit, the assessment was pretty good . The fairly challenging hike was worth it!
