I think it was the most fun I've had hiking in Shenandoah National Park. The rock scramble near the summit is great and it's a nice change of pace after hiking other trails all day. This trail reminds me of a rollercoaster - it's a lot of fun and you get a big rush, but it's over almost as soon as it starts. I enjoyed it so much that when I finished I hiked it a second time.
