  • Very beautiful mountain. Parking and free climbing. Wonderful view! Very clean place and the road is indicated.

  • The hike to the top is pretty, it'll take about an hour and a half. What makes it worth it is the Overlook views of Lake Willoughby.  more »
  • Read a review that stated that the view from atop this hike was like being in Costa Rica. Have to admit, the assessment was pretty good . The fairly challenging hike was worth it!  more »

  • Had a great hike along the south trail, which we heard was slightly easier than the north trail (which was supposedly a little steeper). It took us a little over an hour to reach the summit (being experienced hikers). The lookouts along the way are much more enjoyable than the summit itself (a large rock surface with an average view) which was slightly anticlimatic. Once you're at the top it's worth it to go the extra few hundred meters to the west lookout which is awesome and gives a wider angle than the previous ones. Would definitely recommend this place for a nice hike and a day at the beach!
  • Short steep hike with great views
  • Superb mountain with Lake
