You can drive right up to the mountain for a short hike. We parked in Kingsmere and hiked up several adjoining trails to get there. Almost no bugs, trail is well marked and there are plenty of beautiful views at the top.

A pretty trail with lots of stairs and some interesting scrambles over exposed rock. My 4-year old was able to walk it with a bit of help and we had a nice view from the top. I would say its more moderate than easy.

A nice play to go to see the fall colours as an alternative to the Champlain Lookout or Pink lake. The parking lot is never as crowded.

Great trail. Easy with breathtaking views. Good for children as well:) maybe not elderly as there is a lot of stairs and incline but nothing strenuous.

Awesome trail, not terribly long or very difficult at all! It also has a couple very nice look out a long the trail. We went off the trail a few times and there we some AMAZING look outs!
