I did the 5 peak challenge. Phenomenal views and so exciting to complete. I'm a Rock Star.

This is a nice hike to all 5 peaks at Hanging Rock State Park. If you go counter-clockwise, you'll face the hardest climb first, with pretty much a mile of stairs to climb to get to the top of Moore's Knob. Approaching it clockwise leaves Moore's Knob til last, and then the ascent is about a 2 mile climb with a lot of rocks and scrambling - your choice! Have fun!
