Oh but the way back down was easy all downhill..
This was a peaceful hike. My two kids and myself. We never passed anyone it was up hill wow feel the burn ha ha.. No it's not that bad my pack was a little heavy. I uploaded like 4 or 5 pics. The trail only goes up to the rocks and another trail. There's a flat area for a blanket to picnic. It's ok.. Nice to add it as another check mark done.. But I won't hike it again.
I used this trail to lead me onto the appalacian trail. It's about 1.5 miles and up hill to the AT.
