Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"An easy 2.2-mile walk to excellent west-facing views, perfect for a picnic or sunset supper. Few hikes offer such a gorgeous view with such little effort. As the name implies, this rocky outpost has views to the west. Pack dinner and hike in for a
gorgeous Vermont sunset or just plan a usual day hike.

As the name implies, this rocky outpost has views to the west. Pack dinner and hike in for a gorgeous Vermont sunset or just plan a usual day hike. From the trailhead, head south on the Long Trail. After an initial steep pitch, you will enter the 25,000-acre Breadloaf Wilderness Area; sign in at the kiosk at the boundary. Wilderness Areas are designated tracts of land set aside by the government where the land and wildlife are free to exist in their natural state, untouched by the hand of humans. You are free to travel through and enjoy these areas, but activities and machinery are limited to keep a pristine
wilderness experience."

Easy to find and parking ample. Nice initial accent then levels at peak. 666ft elevation change from trail head to highest point on this section. Some rocks and tree branches, but overall very manageable. Good family hike.
