A challenging short hike up the little mountain with magical views. Gets steeper as you go. Learn about the flora from the non-imposing signs by various trees, plants.... there is a cabin near the top that is open to respectful hikers.

Love to hike this trail; there are two ways up, steeper trail is behind the Blacket's lake church, or you can go up the road way. Scenery is beautiful with a cabin to sit in and sign your name when you get to the top.
