There are some hiccups in the trail guide. First, to find the trail, I never saw a MOUNTAIN AVE. There are road-paddles to mark the place, but they are facing the opposite way, so they're difficult to see on approach. Make sure to turn right where it actually says on a sign STODDARD ROAD (along with some other name, Barron, I think). That's the place you go. Next thing, the remark that you pass a "couple of cabins" is misleading. You pass like about seven or eight (and they are AMAZING cabins BTW). Lastly, and this is most important, when the guide says you come to a "flat area and look for a sharp right to an unsigned path"-- there were rocks piled up to mark this point, but the "unsigned path" is hardly a path at all. If you go in that direction though, you'll find a path that travels up a steep ascent and its a very, very LABORIOUS hike up to the first "false summit," considering the hike up until then has been relatively easy. The trail guide doesn't mention how difficult the last mile or so of this hike is. Be prepared for a workout.
