trail head is very difficult to find. Goat springs trial is very scenic and it is only 1.3 miles of the hike up. the rest of the way to the top is a two track with limited views. lots of deer and wildlife running about at higher elevation. be sure to have good means to navigate as there are many turns along the way. the summit was rewarding also with limited views. Sign the logbook inside the large nearby cairn. 10.4 miles round trip!
