I parked at the trailhead at Quaker Lake and used this trail as my connection the the North Country Trail for a 2 day backpacking trip on the NCT. As the other reviewers have said the first mile is all up. not too bad but the last like 200 yards are no joke lol. But overall it was a nice trail with some nice views along the way.
Great trail without the leaves you can enjoy quite the view
tough initial climb, relatively simple hike across ridge thereafter. few spectacular views, but a solid hike.
Nice trail first mile is basically all uphill. Great views in the spring or fall of quaker lake and the allegheny reservoir!!
Very steep! Not too good for backpacking with overnight bags.
