  • A great hike. It took me 1.5 hours up and 45 minutes down. If you are a hiker the hike up could be much shorter. Beautiful views. At peak you look down on hawks, bald eagles, and Jordan pond.

  • As shared previously, Northwest is tough--fairly steep with lots of scrambling. Wouldn't recommend it after a rain or particularly dewy night. I took it both ways and it took more time coming back down. There is a fun split in the trail about half way up. I used the ledge going up and the ravine going down without issues. Also, parking is very limited at the head of the Northwest trail because it starts at the same place as many of the Bubbles trails. If you arrive before 9AM, you're probably safe.
  • Whatever you do, make sure you go UP the Northwest Trail and DOWN the South Trail. Beautiful views and some strenuous sections. Seriously the Northwest Trail is wayyyyy steeper than the other, you don't want to go down that side lol
