Did this trail in the tail end of a snowstorm that dumped 6-8 inches, made it challenging. There were high winds at the monument, great views all around when the snow finally stopped, and not a soul in sight. March 2017, park roads weren't cleared at 10 a.m. because it was still snowing, so I couldn't drive any further than Lake Marcia and hiked up from there. Great little hike with some stairs-like sections.

Good start from the back end no at mount it's better l think have a great hike

Visited this area in August. Found nice views from Monument and very vivid nature around it.

I started out on the Explorer trail (blue) and went past the Outlook Lodge to Old Swenson Farm trail (yellow). I could not find the remainder of the loop as shown despite following the unmarked trail all the way to Wyker Farmhouse. There was heavy brush, barbed wire fencing, and no trespassing signage. Also my Lusscroft Farm Trails map does not show any routes in that direction.

Since there was freezing rain and I was hiking in fresh snow I decided to cut my losses and head home. I backtracked and took the Americorps Mtn trail (blue) to the Shortcut trail (orange) and back to the yellow trail. I took the Tenderfoot trail (pink) to the Spring House and back to the trailhead on Neilson Rd.

I will return to explore this area more. There are cool old buildings, lots of animal tracks, and a few hunter tree stands. Since I came here in February I did not encounter any ticks, but I will be sure to wear repellent clothing if I am back in warmer months.

Fun hike with a group of Boy Scouts. Parking is close to the monument. Can be steep in spots but fairly easy overall.

I had a good hike. It was a bit challenging but it was a fun trail. I did monument trail but there are many more trails to explore.
