Short hike with nice views that passes an unusual stone livingroom. Catch the blue blazed Hewitt Butler Trail. It climbs a rocky area, then crosses the beginning of the red blazed Tourne Trail. Continue past the red trail and up a fairly steep slope. Upon reaching the top there are some nice views to the northwest. In an open area to your left is an interesting stone living room, complete with chairs, arm rests, love seats, hassocks and end tables, all made of stone.The view from the living room is a nice one, making it a great place for lunch. Continue on the blue trail and it begins to descend steeply down a rocky area and crosses the red trail again at the bottom of a rocky ravine. Continue on the blue. It begins to climb again and you'll shortly reach the summit, known as Osio Rock, with excellent 360 degree views thanks to the gypsy moths killing all the trees there. Turn around and retrace your steps back down and catch the red trail in the ravine. After short scramble over rocks its an easy walk back to the car.

Follow the black on blue blazes once past the stone living room to join the red blaze bearing right. If you bear left it dead ends not far from where they both meet. Great hike but doing the complete loop past the peak can be difficult at times.

I walk this area several times a year with friends and family and we enjoy it every time. This is such a great hike if you are in the area or even if you're willing to drive out. It has a wide range of sights, climbs, and wildlife that will make you want to come back in different parts of the year! The view of the skyline and the area alone is worth it. i really cannot recommend this hike enough!!

Great hike - - nice challenge. Views were great and the stone living room is real cool! There's a beautiful breeze at that location.

Great hike, very exciting and adventurous for kids! We recommend taking the blue trail (w views) to Oslo Rock and the red trail (shorter, no views) back.

But forgot to mention that you have to make it to Osio Rock to make it amazing.

Views are nice but nothing astounding IMO, the Living Room is cool and a great place to relax and chat mid hike.

Has become my go-to hike when I'm looking for something quick and not to strenuous.
