Difficult for a beginner- very rocky and steep uphill climb. Tread carefully on the way down, especially when the rocks are wet. Beautiful hike, though! Once you get on the AT white blaze it's much easier.
There is parking at the trail head at the dead end of White Oak Rd.

Great trail! Very rocky so make sure you have on boots. A lot of the trail follows a stream that you cross twice. Beautiful views at the top!

This is a fun trail that I will do again. My wife and I are in our mid 20s and while it was a nice steep climb, it is not super challenging. We took our 1 year old dog along and it was great for her as well. Discovered that at the intersection where you meet up with the Appalachian trail there is a little camp site, which would be a great overnight camp out in the wilderness.

Ascend to the rocks for a great view. Descend and grab some cold water from the stream.
