Good little trail. The parking lot is right on route 126 and can be easily missed. It’s more of a dirt pull off site. One of the trees to the left of where the trail starts has a sign. I hiked this after work on 7/23. It had been raining for a few days and on that night it was drizzling. First 1/4 Mile, after kiosk climbs steadily. It does level out after that. The rock slabs can be very slick when wet. The red Trail blazes were faint, keep an eye out for them as the trail tends to split into different directions. When you get to the junction where the link sign points left, look right. The trail continues up and past the stone wall. If you are not watching for the red blazes you could walk right past the turn for the summit. I used the app map on here to double check I was staying on the right trail as it was getting dark and as I said, the blazes are faint. No summit view for me due to weather, but I may venture back there again sometime.
