  • Combination of easy and moderate hike. Goes through marsh, saw a snake. The view at the top is amazing.  more »
  • Many small children on the trail when we went. Not a hike for anyone with bad knees, but other then that, I believe anyone else can do it. Very satisfying feeling to be on the top of the mountain....  more »
  • Very good hike. I would consider it as moderate. The uphill took around 55 minutes with huge traffic. Heard some old people say it was very difficult for them to climb to the top. I guess it depends on individual's perspective if the home is to be considered moderate it hard. The views from the top are very good and lot of birds to watch and photograph when you are at the top. The downhill is easy and can be done in around 30 minutes. The fall colors during the hike and from the summit are beautiful.
  • Beautiful place with spectacular views. But be sure to get there early (especially on nice weekends) as tge parking is limited. We arrived there on a Saturday morning at around 8.45am and parking was still ample. By the time we got back to our car by 11.30am, parking was full and traffic was backing up on Rt 94. But it is well worth the hike.
