Beautiful views from several vistas as you hike your way around the top of the mountain. Perfect for fall color photography!

After the wonderful hike at Sam's Throne we decided to add this one. At first it was very flat & easy on an old road but the last 1/2 mile became increasingly overgrown with wild briars. We ended up turning around after countless cuts & scratches. The further we went the worse it got. We never reached the end & the view

We hiked several trails in this area over two days & this was our favorite. On a mountain top with the best vistas!
