Fantastic view! Nicely maintained trail...Good strenuous upward hike. Would do again!
WOW!! We entered the park and began a great trek alongside a fast moving stream. It rained through the night prior to the hike and the water flowed down every inch of this mountain. The trail was sloppy and slippery with ample mud, roots and rocks to navigate as we climbed the Forest City Trail. When I thought we had reached the summit I was a bit disappointed about the remaining hike to the bald peak as it was SOOOO far away. The landing on the back end had took some scrambling and was still well below the tree line. The fianl 1/3 up the mountain was a stair-stepping uphill climb the entire way until you suddenly break the tree line and are forced to scramble huge boulders the for the remainder of your trip to the summit. It was 28 degrees with a constant 40 mile an hour wind and it was brutal on exposed skin. We hid amongst the trees before braving the peak which had SPECTACULAR 360 degree views with great color at the peak of Autumn. Definately a workout and definately rewarding. We descended along (at least I think it was) the Camels Hump Trail.
