Straight up and straight down, not much to see except towers at the top, though the view through the power line trail is pretty nice. There’s a field about half way up that had a better view than the top.

Didn't really love this trail. Not much of a "payoff" at the top where the radio/radar towers are. There was a nicer vantage point halfway up - an unmarked trail opens up on a field that was nice.

The trail itself was well marked and easily identified.

I did not see it mentioned (I could have missed it) but you should park at Beagle Gap parking area and cross the street.

It's a fun, short little hike. Good for families and pets who might get tired out easily.

Easy walk though it is straight up hill to radio towers. There are a couple of tractor seats sunk in the ground at the summit. Quirky and quick and on the AT.
