Went in late March and the trees were still brown with no leaves, however it allowed for a nice view of the surrounding hills. Just follow the orange trail up to the white trail (AT). The first 1/2 mile is pretty steep and gets your heart rate up and the second 1/2 mile is still up hill but not as tedious. Sunfish pond was beautiful with the late afternoon sun sparkling on the water. Once you get to the top and are on the AT trail (white blazes) it get's pretty rocky and there are a few spots where it's basically stepping from one rock to another. Only saw a few people on the trail, otherwise it was quiet with only the sound of a near bye stream and wind through the trees.
