Great Trip. We saved Mount Major for last as it had the best views by far. It was also the busiest. Mount Anna had no views but helped fill out mileage. Got to the parking lot early (8am) and parked near the trail head. When we left, cars were parked 1/2 mile away.

I've been in the area since Sunday and hiked every day. The sun was out today so I decided to go up for the view. I took the orange route up and the blue route down. The blue route could use a refresher in the trail markers.

Went up the main blue trail and down the orange; challenging climb up but the views were so worth it! Dog loved it. Best to do once the snow fully melts; Tried to third in early spring but the snow melt made the trail too muddy with rivers to get up there.

This hike is the closest to where we live as the more difficult ones are further out. It's a great moderate hike, never gets too steep, but isn't a simple walk up either. There are several different trails to choose from heading up. Views at the top are amazing, large area to walk around. Typically pretty busy however. Lots of dogs.
