We tried to access the Tussey Mountain trail from the Kettle trail, which doesn't exist... so word to the wise, try and get onto it another way, Shingle trail is open. Out and back on the Tussey Mountain ridge had incredible views and an unbelievable amount of blueberry bushes. We will be back when they're ripe to eat along the hike. It was moderately strenuous, just due to the length, once you get to the ridge it's flat, easy walking. Beer tap was cool, but sadly, no beer was flowing.

Tussey Mt. Trail to the Beer Tap, as shown on Purple Lizard Map (out-and-back route). Awesome hike in general - took about 3.5mi to get to the beer tap, and overall, was very lightly trafficked and well marked. Moderate seems right as the rating, mostly due to the length. Some uphill parts, but nothing strenuous. Would recommend, would do again. Bring water and hiking boots! Total; ~7.5-8mi // 2.5-3hr total.

Test of endurance for a newbie like me. Very enjoyable with all the berries: blue, black, black raspberries, and dew. The Beer Tap was cool. The return back to the parking lot on Treaster Kettle Road was long, it seemed forever.
