“This is an small ridge hike with many excellent views.”— David Smith
It crosses the road, then travels along the left side of the observation tower. It descends through both of the summit parking areas, then takes the right trail at the lower end of the parking lot. Here, the trail travels over a heavily used area; please use the stairs provided.
It follows along the edge of the road, then re-enters the woods. It runs into the upper terminus of Old Mountain Trail and turns right. It runs past the obscure Henry Street Loop (on the right) and begins to ascend below the ridge. When it reaches the yellow-blazed Hemlock Trail (on the right), it turns left.
Here, it follows along the top of the ridge and past a few views. It passes by Aspiring Oaks Trail (on the right) and begins its descent on the ridge. It passes by an access spur and turns right. The trail runs along a doubletrack to a parking area, off Hillside Road.
