Awesome hike! Simple and easy. The direction here leads you to another place.. but I actually parked at the 'main' entrance (?) where the welcome sign is by Green Pond Rd, if that helps. And from there, we just kept on following the Orange trail.
Breathtaking view! Didn't think it was that high haha. You'll see a very open and beautiful view. Makes the hike worth it.
Beautiful hike with an absolutely breathtaking overlook. The terrain was pretty easy. Towards the end we made our own trail down the side of the mountain. Definitely something you can go down but I would not suggest trying to go up that way.
Here is the tricky thing about this trail. If you use the GPS from this app it will take you down Split Rock Road, which has no/prohibits parking. The trail from this road does enter you on the White Dot trail. This trail is long and scenic, great woodland views and a few running creeks at the right times. Ultimately this trail from this entrance will bring you to the Hawk Watch point. However, if you are trying to find the Bat Cave or the Cemetery, this is not where you want to be. The Bat Cave and the Cemetery are off of "Lower Hibernia Road" in Rockaway. Just enter "Lower Hibernia Road" in your GPS. You can't miss the Wildcat Ridge parking lot marked by a large brown sign. Enter the trail and follow the White Dot trail. Once on the trail, the bat cave will be off to the right up a small hill. Can't miss it. The Cemetary is up a little further while on the White Dot trail. Enjoy!
