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.

This is a short but steep trail with a relatively flat section between the two uphill sections. Take your time, but keep going. The reward on top would be worth the effort.

Loved the view. Its quite a hike up to the top but once you're up there it is so worth it. So beautiful just to sit back and look at the view.

Absolutely the hardest hike I've taken this year! I hated every second of the extremely steep,rocky trail. I didn't want to finish it,until I finally got to the top...and then it was all worth it! The view is breath taking!
The climb up is very difficult. Make sure you take enough water. Luckily for me on my way down some workers lead me to a new trail(yellow) they were finishing up. The trail is much easier on the knees(joints). It was a smooth way back to the parking lot.
Be prepared for this hike!

Definitely not for the faint of heart...or the out of shape. This is a difficult uphill climb, but the view at the top makes it worthwhile. Enjoy!

Difficult trail on the return hike between the rocks and steep hills but soooooo worth it. Gorgeous view!
