Nice trail. South trail has very gradual climb with nice views of the river and as you make the bend toward the North trail, Nice views of Reading city and the pagoda across the valley on Mt Penn. Along the North trail there is the witch's hat pavilion(1890 construction), radio tower and power lines, water tanks... There are a number of historical ruins from when this area was a get-away spot for Reading inhabitants. There are some nice steep climbs, creeks and older trees on the nob tops.
