This hike has incredible views. This is a very popular hike! The parking lot was overflowing, and people were parking along the street. Today was prime leaf peeping season, and everyone was out on the trail - hikers, and casual leaf peepers (just going to the ledges). Be careful with dogs near the Giant Ledges - they go straight down, over 100 feet.
Make sure to continue a little past the Panther summit in order to see more views.
