  • This was a great hike. My wife and I, love the Alexander Murray Hiking trail. It took about 3 hrs, at a slow pace, but it was worth the hike. The view was amazing.

  • What a tremendous walking trail. The scenery, especially from the top is worth every step. They appear to be getting ready for important repairs at the summit. Don't miss the Gorge. It is refreshing after a work out.
  • Takes a while to get to the meat of the hike but great hike overall with amazing views. The side hike to the falls is a must. Took a little less than 3 hours for the entire hike.
