Great Trail. Well marked & used. Great rocks for climbing, repelling, and bouldering. Climbs the mountain to top about 500' gain, then heads out along the top of the mountain until it hits Center Point Knob. Joins the Appalachian Trail at Center Point Knob (about 1.5mi from trail head)
We had a blast hiking this trail. We took our dog and he made it a little tricky to navigate the rocks, but it wouldn't be a tough climb without him. The hardest part of the trail was at the top of the mountain, there were a lot of large rocks to navigate around. We arrived around 10:30 on a cloudy Sunday and never saw anyone else! There were nice views from the too but no big overlook, just looking through the trees. It would be tough to see the views when there are leaves on the trees though.
Love this place, both for hiking and for climbing/bouldering. It's officially listed as "moderate," but the trail is pretty steep in some areas, so definitely wear some decent hiking shoes. The top of the mountain offers an amazing view, but you'll need to climb several large boulders to get there. Be on the lookout for snakes during the summer months (they won't bother you; just don't step on them!).
Easy hike. With most of the leaves gone in the fall/winter you get a nice view on both sides while hiking the ridge to the outlook. Pretty neat climbing through the boulders. Outlook isn't the best in the area but still worth the hike.
Nice view and plenty challenging for a new hiker. I recommend it if you don't mind a steep ascent and winding around boulders.
