Very worthwhile hike. Easy access, short steep trail, and nice views. The trail is very shaded until you reach the top. While the Mountain Lake Lodge area is open to visitors, the trails aren't very well-signed. If you park at the Visitor Parking, you'll walk back along Mountain Lake Road and take a right just before the edge of the Lodge into the grass up a hill. You'll see the trail shortly after this.

Great views from the top! Very steep but still a good time!
