We have hiked up LeConte on several occasions and from several starting points. All of them are pristine in their beauty, awe-inspiring, and offer varying degrees of challenge. This time, we took the Alum Cave Bluff trail--which can be unnerving for some at the bluff itself--my wife included. As on previous hikes, she had some balancing problems here, but once we were beyond the bluff, she did very well as always. The trail is fairly smooth and not too difficult. Any way you choose to hike to the summit is well worth it! If you want to overnight at the lodge, make your reservations about a year in advance! You are treated royally from the time you arrive until you depart back down the mountain.
