Great hike with exceptional views. Only 1/2 mile from road to summit which makes it a great stop if your traveling through the Adk's. The terrain is relatively steep but the trail is well beaten and there are several switchbacks to help alleviate the incline. I made the top in about 25 mins. The summit is bald on the south/south/east side which gives you great views of Seward and Ampersand Mts. You can also see Tupper Lake looking west.
