If the trail proves to be too much of a challenge, don't worry, about half way through the trail, there is an emergency exit that will take you straight to the canal towpath.
If you can stick it out, the view from atop the Mather Gorge is well worth it.
Overall this is one of our favorite hikes and we make it a point to do this one at least twice a year. Don't forget some good hiking shoes with the tread in good shape! One other note is that you may want to apply a little bug spary on your legs becaue ticks and chiggers might be around during the summer months! Happy Hiking!
