This trail is easy to miss at the beginning, check the map to be sure you go the right way. Almost all the trail is a little rocky, but easy enough to walk. As you get closer to the mountain the brush makes it a little more to follow the trail. Look for the piles of small rocks that someone left along the path to help mark the way.
There was a little bit of an ascent to get up to the rocks at Wind Gap, but so well worth the views. I will do it again.
