This short trail provides a direct route to ledges with excellent views towards the west. Follow the old logging road uphill from the trailhead. In less than a quarter mile, you will reach a junction with an old ATV trail on the right. Follow this eroded ATV trail up to the summit, bearing right at all intersections. There is one steep spot with tricky footing, but it is an overall easy trail. The best views are down a short path, just past the summit ledges.Show more

Potato Hill can be climbed from either the south or from the north. The trail from the north leaves Kennison Road at an inconspicuous spot (no sign) without any designated parking. The trail climbs steeply through mixed forest and soon attains the ridge. It is then an easy walk along the ridge to the summit ledges. The trail from the south leaves Day Mountain Road between two houses (also no sign) and also does not have designated parking. The trail climbs steadily through hardwood forest with signs of recent logging. The trail reaches the south end of the ridge and then the summit ledges. From the summit ledges there are limited views to the north and west. Better views can be had from a small ledge off of the trail (visible on satellite images). A short bushwhack west from the trail about 0.1 north of the summit will reveal this ledge. Although this trail is generally easy to follow, it is unmarked, lightly used and quite steep in places, so care should be taken while hiking.Show more
