Very well maintained West Ridge Trail to summit is fairly easy. The South Ridge Trail is much steeper and less well maintained. Some nice views from West Ridge as you near the summit and 360 views from the rocky summit. Windy and cold today. Bring a jacket if you want to hang out on the summit for any length of time. There is a fire tower with a concrete footing so there is a wind break, but if it's crowded, the spot fills up quickly. SOuth Ridge trail is much more challenging but there are no views and its less well maintained and trafficked than the West Ridge Trail.

I really enjoy this area..it's to bad people don't know how to read the "dogs must be on a leash " sign..it's really unfair to people who are uncomfortable with loose dogs

Went up Falling Waters and down Greenleaf to the viewing spot of what used to be the Old Man in the Mountain. We started at 10:30am and finished in about 6 hours moving pretty quickly. Loved falling waters, that trail is almost worth the hike alone, but the summit views were awesome and it was great to stop in at the hut on the way down.
