Short, easy hike to nice views. Hawks in abundance during migration season. A short hike that is good for families, as it's not too hard. Bird lovers will enjoy the spring and fall hawk migration seasons. From parking take the white blazed Ridgeline Trail to the summit. It follows a well defined woods road. Return this way or bear left on a short blue blazed trail then turn left (south) onto the yellow blazed trail and take it back to your car.

Not too strenuous. Short hike to good views.

This hike should be labeled easy compared to the many hikes labeled moderate and rightly so. A great place to take in sunsets and moonrises.

This was a fun trail. The area is beautiful to hike through, rocky with some muddy spots. The tall pines along the steep edge of the mountain are really beautiful and there's a bench to sit and take it in. The views at the top are beautiful in so many directions! We look forward to doing this trail again.

The trail was a bit congested though the view impressive. Wish there was a 2.5-ish mile loop.

NIce easy walk to a large clearing with great views. (Would be a great picnic spot) only takes 10 minutes to get to the clearing.
