This short-but-tough hike scrambles up the north side of Rocky Face Mountain, climbing to the grave of a Confederate soldier en route to far-ranging views from open outcrops that give this peak a name. Since it isn’t far to the top from the trailhead, anybody can make the climb, taking ample breaks. A fit person can make it without stopping. The trailhead is atypical and your first time driving to it will seem a little strange. But yes, you do drive directly up the steep driveway of the Church of the Nazarene. The trail’s beginning is clearly marked. Join a singletrack dirt path overlain upon an old faded roadbed. A rich hardwood forest grows tightly, and the understory brush will be thick during summertime. This trail has a well-deserved reputation for steepness, but at this point the path is only gently climbing, and you can’t help but wonder when the real ascent begins.
