This place is a must see for those who are interested in a short day hike but a senic drive to the top. Don't be affraid of the road it is passable but very rough also at times. This trail is also not for the faint at heart. It is a moderate trail to say the least. It is narrow in places, but when you get to the top you will see nothing but wilderness. This is truly the Grand Canyon of the east. Be careful when hiking on damp days here. I love this place myself.
