Anthony's Nose Professional Review and Guide

"A strenuous cross-country day hike to the summit of the second highest peak in the Franklin Mountains. Special Attractions: Views, rugged mountains, solitude.

Not only is the hike long, it ascends 2300 feet. The hike is very hot in summer with little shade. Winter is usually good, but go prepared for the occasional winter storm. Such storms can drop the temperature far below freezing and even dump occasional snows. Get an early start in winter, since the days are short. You will probably need all day for this hike. Hikers need to obtain the relevant topographic maps before doing the climb. The map provided in this guide is not sufficient by itself for this hike."
