Need to Know

We hiked the trail in the rain, so less mud likely in dry weather.

Description

This is a well-maintained, well-marked, easy/intermediate trail. Parking is at trailhead.

The first 200 yards are a wide track with an easy uphill grade. At fork, go right and follow blue blazes. (If you go left it is a short detour to see a sheer rock face of about 50 feet, which then leads back to main trail.)

The next 100 yards is rocks and roots on an easy uphill grade. After that, the rest of the trail is flat through beautiful woodlands with some muddy patches. The trail leads to a wide rock ledge with wonderful views of Whiteface Mountain and the valley. Well worth the trek.
