Steep (but not too long) with some rock scrambling. But great views part way up and at the top. The trail is well worn down, but not marked.
Please be courteous when parking on the private road.

Another great intro to the Daks and a wonderful little climb for kids, 1st timers, or out of shape hikers. Lovely views and loads of fun. Time your trip and enjoy tons of wild blueberries along the way.

My daughter and I went together, and loved this hike. It was gorgeous, high peaks all around. So many different points to take in the views. It was quick and easy. We spent 2 hours on the mountain, and that was with us exploring and her stopping for a snack!

Such a beautiful hike that's short and easy enough for kids of all ages but gives you magnificent views of high peaks. It's a shame that people couldn't respect the private land, it will be shut down for use at the end of the year.
