Appropriate for families, this hike to the summit offers natural history, geology, panoramic views, and folklore. If you have the luxury of time, pick a clear day for this hike and go early in the morning. Sunrise is a great time to enjoy the views and get some superb photos. Save foggy days for hikes to waterfalls; fog adds to the aura of wetness.

I made this hike with a buddy, our two sons (age 9), and my nephew (age 10). We made it an overnight loop, camping along the river downstream from the Corbin Cabin. The hike was easy; some of the steep sections were difficult for the kids but they all made it with fully-loaded packs. The Nicholson cabin was interesting to see. It's amazing how good shape it is still in.
