Leading directly from the Lewis Mountain Campground, this hike makes a pleasant short stroll for adults and a small adventure for children. If you’re not camping at Lewis Mountain, you may park either at the picnic area or at the camp store, then walk the short distance through the campground to campsite 16, where the trail begins. Follow the blue blazes. What a great hike this is for imaginative kids! Children can conjure images of trolls and bears as they hike up the path, overgrown on all sides with mosses and ferns. This hike is not too big on scenery, though, even at the summit, as trees have grown enough to block the views.
