Great hike! Spent the afternoon with a friend with no plans but to play the day by ear, came along this trail and decided to give it a go. The only down side is the markers tend to be confusing so we had to turn around a few times to get back onto the trail. But there was a really cool rock wall/cave that we explored when we accidentally veered off course, which was stunning! Made our way to the tiny look out and it was breathtaking! The views were glorious and hung out for a couple hours over some IPAs. I'd totally recommend this trail to anyone looking for a fun adventure!

It was a somewhat more challenging climb than we thought, but definitely not out of reach. Wear good hiking or climbing boots. Muddy and rocks. Take the time to explore the rock cave about 2/3 up the trail. Beautiful view, totally worth it!

Hiked with three young boys. Can't beat the view at the top. A lot easier and less muddy than Blue Mountain, but both are worth the climb!

Nice trail. Great view. Do not pay attention to my recording. Between the flies and the inconsistent gps signal I managed to record nothing. Trail has a few tough spots. Some cool rock formations near the top. Would consider doing it again in the fall.
