Using a GPS to drive to this location is a bit difficult, particularity if you are coming in from the south. Bake Oven Rd turns into a dirt road. Drive up to the top of the mountain, and arrive at the state game land parking area. You can access the train from this location.

Absolutely incredible experience. First overnight backpacking trip with my love and her bro. The rocks were difficult but the views were spectacular. Did around 23 miles in two days...can't wait to go back. Go Rock Cheetah!!

Can anyone explain directions to a parking and the easiest/shortest trail to get to the best view?

to be fair, I only hiked the 3 miles by the lehigh gap. that portion was quite difficult because you are scrambling vertically for a good portion of it. lots of fun! you can't get a hike like that very often in southern pa. highly recommend if you can scramble
