Moderate to easy. Tried blue to red to blue to white instead of the reverse for a more moderate hike
This hike was wonderful. I absolutely loved looking at all the abandoned structures
Nice hike. If you take the Cornish trail it seems much easier than the Washburn trail. Same loop but left is more of a gradual incline. Right is up and switchbacks for about 1.5 miles.
I just took the white Washburn trail out and back, and it took me under 2 hours, so that's the one to take if you're looking for a quick jaunt with a beautiful view!!! It is easy to go off the trail on herd paths and old trails that are shut down due to erosion-- it is extremely important NOT to take the rocky old quarry road past where the white arrow turns right-- this route is dangerous and fragile. Stick to blazes. A couple of steep pitches-- definitely Mt. Taurus, not "bull hill". But beautiful sights and slightly less traffic than other hikes in the east highlands (Beacon, Breakneck, etc. )
beautiful trail. very unique ruins! awesome views. if I lived closer I would frequent this trail. otherwise worth the drive. many look outs
