Great hike that is much less crowded than nearby Bear Mountain with almost as good views on a nice long ridge. Isn't has challenging as Major Welch Trail going up Bear Mountain, but still lots of fun for a quick 2-3 hour hike.

Coming down is a real ankle buster, but great views along to top of the whole mountain.

Good all-around hike, with a little bit of everything: scenic views, water crossings, modest climbs, etc. We hiked it on Thanksgiving so as hoped, we had the trails to ourselves.
