Flat Top Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A switchback-laden ascent takes you to the top of Flat Top Mountain, where views of the adjacent Peaks of Otter and beyond can be had on both sides.

Along the way you will wind through attractive woods that open to Cross Rock and a warm-up vista. The 1,500-foot climb to the top of Flat Top is mitigated by first-rate trail construction and the aforementioned switchbacks. If you can, choose a clear, crisp day to make this trek. The views are marvelous."
