Very subtle incline until last 0.5 miles or so before reaching the ridge line. There is an active black bear family along the trail, I ran into one of the cubs recently and heard the mother chatting with the youngsters, although I did not see the adult, just one of the cubs. The ridge hike to Ellen is spectacular with a bit of rock scrambling. Great day hike and the ski lift platform makes for a superb lunch spot with awesome views of the valley.
Our family stayed at Maple Hill Campsites, a small family owned campground that actually shuttled us to the trail From there we hiked and enjoyed breathtaking views and the wonderful foliage of Vermont's green mountains. From the Jerusalem trail we hiked to the Lincoln Gap on the long trail. A good days hike and a wonderful time!
