Description

It almost a 4.6 mile roundtrip hike. Terrain is rocky and steep with some muddy patches. Be sure to carry bug spray. Suggest to start early since parking is limited and it attracts quite a few hikers.

Top of the mountain is very windy. Have a jacket or something for layering at the top. View from the top is great and definitely worth the difficult hike. As a hike, it can be completed within 4 - 5 hours with reasonable breaks and some time at the summit.

Hikers can also go to Porter Mountain Trail on nearing the summit. There is a path which takes to porter mountain (0.7 miles).
