Description

This route makes for a fairly easy outing with a great view at the summit of Mt. Willard. The journey is a round trip distance of about 3 miles. The trail has a few small streams to cross, but they are very easy to navigate and the trail is well marked. The hardest climb is in the middle of the trail, where grades steepen, but things mellow out after that.

Once you've enjoyed the views and a snack at the summit, simply return the way that you came to get back to your vehicle.
