Not to be confused with "Watchung Mountain." Directions from the App may not route correctly (Apple Maps took the drive into and adjacent apartment community). Appears trail starts in Chimney Rock Park. Check park schedule: evening of visit was wall-to-wall with little league games (no parking, noisy, over-crowded). Did not get to trail because of this. Will not try again.

This trail is not difficult for hiking in fact its rather easy. The trail starts at a baseball park in a parking lot, then goes through a frisbee golf course. Then the trail leads you across a main road in a slight incline then down again. We wound up getting a bit lost since we had to go across another road. After that the trail was easily followed and eventually lead to another parking lot and you guessed it another road. You finish off walking behind people's back yard and then finnaly ....another road. Wasn't difficult for hiking. I could see this being a great mountain biking spot
