Parked at Old Toll Road trailhead, and hike the road to Parker Trail. Take Parker Trail through The Notch, then climb the Cliff Walk through the Amphitheater to the White Arrow Trail to the summit. Return via Smith Summit Trail past Monte Rosa descending via Fairy Spring Trail, then to Old Halfway House Trail back to gate.

Great hike! The Cliff Walk appears to be much less traveled so peaceful even when there are a gazillion people on the mountain. This is such a popular place on weekends I highly suggest getting out early to beat the crowds. Either way, just do it...this mountain is terrific!
