Oh boy, the muscles in my legs were certainly tested, especially on the descent. This "monadnock" is a real pip. The views were fantastic from the hang-gliding ramp and from the observation tower.

We loved this hike. We followed our dog all the way - he somehow seemed to know exactly whcih way to go. It is a challenging hike for 2 legged beings. But it was absolutely worth it especially when we reached the snow covered firns nr the top - it was like entering a Christmas wonderland, and the views from the summit are spectacular. Do it!
