Ascent Trip Report

Whoa!!! "AWESOME" As someone wrote in the trail register is the best way to describe this. The views from Giant Ledge are stunning! The downside to this trail there are tons of people on it. If you are going on the weekend on a pleasant day, you will be bombarded. I must have seen 30 people heading up on my descent back. The good news is few of them seem to go past the first few overlooks, which there are many, and even fewer were seen on panther. This is a great, short pleasant hike with breathtaking views.
