The first 4 miles are all easy trail walking. You actually turn onto the Winchester Trail, which is blazed yellow. The closer to the top you get the steeper and more rocky and difficult the trail becomes. Once on the top of the ridge the yellow blazes cease but the trail turns to the left and follows the ridge out to the boulder field which overlooks Lock Haven. A great trail but would not suggest attempting in temperatures ABOVE 50 degrees as this is prime rattle snake area.
