One of my favorites in this area.
Really cool hike on a well maintained trail. Great view from the top. Its a must do if your in the area
Absolutely relaxing and beautiful views. Rained on us ! We still had a picnic. Let's do this again !
The views are fantastic! Make sure to take lots of water and wear sturdy shoes.
Great hike, worth it for the view.
A great hike
Wonderful hike! It's a moderate to hard hike. Quite vertical the second half with lots of loose schist rock. Completely worth it though for the view.
Very nice trail
I've hiked this one twice. Moderate hike with a lot of great views. The last time i hiked it was this February, so the description of it being closed until May is incorrect.
Great views of surrounding countryside.
Beautiful hike - bring a big jug of water and a walking stick! Poison Ivy was turning red so it was easy to spot on our hike - seemed a bit steep in places but well worth the work - would hike again if given the chance!
