Mount Gilligan is a great trail for family hikes. It's a 2.2 mile round trip trek with a number of lookouts. It's an easy climb over a few hundred feet of elevation gain to Summit which is 1420' above sea level. Park in the fisherman lot on Scriver Road and walk across the bridge. Trailhead is on the left before the house.

Nice short hike! Well maintained trail with a number of ledges offering views. Great for kids or first timers!
