Mount Storm King reviews
This hike/climb is difficult, but so worth the AMAZING view at the summit. But, it's a leg burner and will tax you. When you reach the sign that announces ,"end of maintained trail," keep going... more »
Beautiful hike with excellent viewpoints but definitely not an easy one. It took us over a few hours for the round trip. Good shoes and lots of water are a must and bug repellent is also a good idea. more »
Go past the sign that says End of Maintained Trail, use the ropes to get up, totally worth it. Epic!
Really great hike, challenging and steep but there are ropes to help you climb. Could be very slippery as it was in the middle of April and the top was very cloudy so we could not see the lake from there but there is a nice viewpoint on your way up.
