A good hike through a new natural area that includes several elevation changes This hike is full of elevation gain. You start from the parking lot and hike to the top of Cardwell Hill in old growth on a nice gravelled road. You then be rewarded with a nice downhill walk to the Fitton Green dedication rock. At the rock the gavel ends and you will then follow a dirt road (muddy in the winter) up a second hill to the top of the Fitton Green lookout. After resting and taking in the view (there should be a Porta-Potty near by) you get to do it all again in reverse.

This is a fun little hike, only a little difficult incline.

If you follow the road signs you are not doing the trail as shown here. Follow the app map.

Great views and nice trail deep in the forest. Nice stream crossings and a fairly moderate to easy elevation gain.
