Exchange 2003 Migration to 2013

I plan on upgrading our Exchange Environment from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2013.    What's the best migrate path?  Exchange 2003 - Exchange 2007 - Exchange 2013 or Exchange 2003 - Exchange 2010 - Exchange 2013.  I'm not sure if one upgrade path is better than the other.

Personally I do migrations 2003 - 2010 then on to 2013. I wouldn't use Exchange 2007 at all.
Although so far only one has gone on to 2013, most clients are stopping at 2010 to let the dust settle. Third party support is still patchy and the updates are still coming through to resolve bugs.

You could go either way but if you go 2003 - 2007 then you will need latest service pack for 2007 and Cumulative/Rollup 10 in order to go from 2007 to 2013.
