  • Beautiful trail and a pretty easy hike on the rocks. This trail is very popular, so there are many other people hiking here. It's a gorgeous view at the top!
  • This is a fun and easy hike. There are wonderful clear areas with vistas of the other peaks. You will see young kids and dogs following adults , so its not to hard. Pack a lunch and enjoy the views from the top.. There is a fire tower to add to the fun hike. We bring friends to the Mountain and then on to old Forge which is close by.
