Hatchery Road off Rte 1. Small dam right there by the road. Go to the Federal Fish Hatchery @ Craig Brook. Visit the hatchery visitor center or drive straight ahead on the dirt road. Road goes right, stay right past the first gate you see. There is some hiking info on the board there. The trail head is jsut before the orange post/gate when the road turns private. Road is wide for parking. Trail is unmaked (8/11/10) but just before gate on the left looks like a dry stream bed. Starts out kind of steep, rate it moderate but gradual rise when you get up in elevation.

Beautiful weather for the hike, incredible views at the top with not a cloud in the sky! Trail is steep, but clean and well marked.

Great easy hike. Almost the entire path seems to be paved with a sidewalk of granite. At the top there is an abundance of delicious wild blueberries. Went in early July so that seems to be the time to hit it if you want to try the blueberries.
