Beautiful hike in the woods that is well worth the sweat! Trail is well kept and marked clearly. Ground cover is mostly poison ivy, stay on the path. Lots of super small ticks, spray spray spray!

Great Hike. Encountered around 400 lb. Black bear about mile 3. Beginners be aware of your surroundings.

Lots of switchbacks as we took the trail starting on the left side to ascend quickly up to the lookout. Glad I had a hiking stick with me. Lots of poison ivy.

Great hike, well marked trail. At the beginning we went up to vista first, steep hike up and am glad did this first. Was a cloudy day and view was limited. Hunting season and later found out is recommended to wear orange hat for safety.

This is a trail that is very close to home for me, so I've been on it countless times. This is a good loop for how close to home it is, but if you're coming from far away, there are better trails. There is really only one scenic point on the loop. Going clockwise, the section after the vista is nice. There aren't any amazing views, but you get a nice, easy hike across the mountain to the OT intersection.

Depending on which way you go will determine how difficult this trail is. If you are looking for more easier hike, I wouldn't recommend going counter-clockwise. Going clockwise will take you up the steep side of the mountain, which is a strenuous workout.

We didn't have time to complete the whole trail, so we went straight up to the vista and back down. Definitely a good work out by the time we got to the top. Even though it was July with the tree canopy it was pretty comfortable. However... We must have ventured in during national tick day or something because I counted no less than 25 by the time I made it down. 1 hour hiking, 2 de-ticking. Plan accordingly.

I actually liked this one quite a bit. Not very challenging but some pretty nice views.
