Hike Summary: The lot for panther typically empties out after about 1:30 in the early spring, with enough time to hike it and still beat sunset if you're quick, but is certainly better for an early day with plenty of time to enjoy the top of giant ledge, which has lots of viewpoints. There's a small dip of a couple hundred feet before the ascent of panther, which has one or two outlooks past the official peak.
