There is nowhere designated to park for this trail; you just want to park on the side of the road where the paved road ends. The trail is very overgrown which can make it difficult to walk through. The “private way” sign is a bit deterring too, but there doesn’t seem to be any other indicator you can’t hike there. Both summits are overall unimpressive and there is only one okay viewpoint. Definitely not my favorite mountains nor my favorite hike in this area.

There was a “Private way” sign about 1/4 mile up the dirt road so we had to turn around.

Very quit trail, great view, multiple ledges. and a cave on East Quarry, small side trail marked. West Quarry has a site marked out with a stone quarry from mid 1800's Trail head is at the end of Gildden road. You can drive up the dirt road a shot ways and park on an old log landing or park side of Gildden rd.
