  • We went by car. Was going to walk from the trailhead, samall vehicle w / hut, mountain peaks through the mountain was unfortunate rain will change I rename the evil mountain to the piston by using the aerial tramway was. Using the aerial tramway to the Summit 1 hour and a half, can be reached. Was rain in the second half of the trail are maintained until the Middle walkway, walkable, and were like in the swamp. There was often still green but in some places near the Summit of red colored leaves. I think where you can enjoy a variety of fun and pleasant Woods walk on a gentle slope, and rocks in some places, so there is also hot springs trailhead.
