The parking is easy to find via GPS just past 36 Sunnyside Road. I recommend this hike for people who are fit. I wouldn't bring children under 10 years old as there are plenty of lose rocks and it is steep!

Hot/humid but that can't be helped! Pathways are very well marked & used; nice! For us, we were there at a FAB time for viewing mushrooms & fungi, unbeknownst to us prior! Superb.

Trail well marked and maintained. Great views at the summit, this hike can be linked to other trails in the area for a all day adventure.

Amazing views with good trails. Trail can be limited, but scenery spectacular. Make this a place to go.

There are many hours of trails in this area and we trekked through at least 6 of them. Beautiful, almost untouched trails through dense woods and mountain ridges...just be athletic and ready to sweat. Head up to the reservoir for a picnic lunch--it's very pretty.
