a great little hike. 2 miles up, 2 miles down. Enough elevation to give you a little sweat. Summit is quite beautiful. definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. Use the directions from the All trails app to get to the trail head. even the drive up is beautiful.

The AllTrails app placed us right to the trailhead. A great day for a hike through a very rocky trail. The blue blazes were not as plentiful as I am used to but the well worn path made following the trail a no-brainer. The trail was heavily trafficked due to the fall foliage. Had a beautiful lunch with my wife at the summit; a win-win time.

Nice moderate trail. No hand holds needed to reach summit. Noticed ankle turns more than usual due to loose rocks on trail. Others in group noticed the same. Trail signs good. Trail maps on trail not so good.

Easy to find trailhead. You go steadily up through the woods until you reach the top. Pretty overlook! Trail was well maintained and easy to follow.

Really nice trail, but I'd definitely call this more than "moderate". Plenty of uphill loose rock sections, followed by loose tree roots. All in all about 75-90mins up to the peak. Well worth the climb!
