Open year round. Makes a steady ascent up the face of the mountain. Upon reaching the apex, the trail begins to level off. Pittmans Lodge at top of trail. From Pittmans Lodge there are options, returning on the same track or continuing along the northern loop.

Great hike. We did the main trail all the way to the cabin and then did the western loop. It was quite wet in spots but was a great day to be outside enjoying the weather.

Fantastic all year hiking trail. Great for all ages, first .5K is all uphill with a bench to rest if needed. Once at the top, the view is amazing.
