Steep trail, but worth the effort to get to the beautiful views at the top. It connects to the Black Mountains Crest Trail.

It took us about 4 hrs round trip for three moderately fit guys. Very rocky and steep, but we had the trail to ourselves. We’ll be feeling it tomorrow.

This trail is very steep and requires scrambling in a few spots. The trail is a relentless attack on the thighs on the way up and a real knee-beater on th way down. You are rewarded with great views at the top and access to the black mountain crest trail.
