Very nice trail. Markers near the beginning of trail are faint and sparse, but once you get going there are more and are more visible. All in woods, so shaded which was nice on this sunny day. Once you get a little ways up there are breezes through the trees, even though it wasn't a breezy day. Some pretty tough spots along the trail so make sure you have a walking stick or two and good hiking shoes. The view from the fire tower at top is very nice and we were able to catch a nice constant cool breeze even on an 88 degree day

Nice trail if you enjoy big trees. Some of the largest White Pine & Hemlocks in the area. Great views through the forest. Last 1/2 mi. is where you gain most of your elev. At the top is Great Hill fire tower with a super 360*.
