Tough hike with a nice view at the end. The trail starts near the amphitheater area of Colonel Denning State Park. Wear good boots, and bring plenty of water this hike is a workout.

So this trail is slightly changing it seems. We went up the normal steep way with rock stairs and steep inclines, but then we ran into a trio of men today who were working on the trail. They are adding (almost completed) two side trails to help ease this trail. The first is yellow blazes that starts before the access road and eliminates the steep incline and the stairs around the pump house. We came down that way and it will be a lot easier when making your way up. The second new trail is before the steep incline that is before the "wagon wheel" intersection of trails. Although these act as switchbacks and may be a little longer in length, these will make it more accessible to more people. The view from the rock is rewarding and amazing. I don't know if there is a better look out in the area

A little bit of everything,(boulders, flats, soft, stoney) with an amazing view at the top. I like this trail so much I return once every year.
