This trail opened to public on Sep 17 2017 after 1.5 years and $25 million dollar restoration effort.

This is nice moderate 7.4 miles out and back trail.
The best parking spot is Bald Mountain parking spot 1.6 miles up mt. Umunhum road and Hicks road intersection. There are about 10 spots + 4 on the sides. Gets filled up early so go there before 7:30 am to get a spot.

The views are spectacular and once on the top, you will be rewarded with gentle breeze.
