Good trail! Just knowing which direction to take makes the big difference. It's steep but its rewarding. You can see Route 8 from the top.

Fun, challenging. Very forgiving in terms of the path you can take.

Also accessible from the Jericho Whitestone connector trail. Minimal parking on Waterbury Road near #2057. I like approaching from that side because it's uphill on the way in , downhill on the way out.

Walked through a giant spider web. Wasn't too happy about that. Other than that it was a great hike. Perfect early autumn hike

My 11 and 9 year olds joined me on this hike yesterday. It was great! The trail was marked by blue paint on the trees... (Please follow this; we didn't the first time and got lost). It was minimum difficulty until we got to the rocks. However, there is a visible, alternate path to the right that we enjoyed taking. The view from the top was great. We wish we would've brought a trash bag as there were beer bottles and food wrappers under a pile of wood. We were also angered by the graffiti on the side of the cliff. Other than that, it was perfect and my children really enjoyed it!
