You’ve heard that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but did you know that the same thing applies to mountains? Indeed, the steep slopes of conical Burke Mountain seem to indicate a formidable trail to the summit. In reality, the grades are surprisingly easy and the walk is a pleasant one. You may even feel a little guilty enjoying such spectacular views from the lookout tower because you didn’t have to work very hard to get there.
