Wow, beautiful but the guides rate it as easy. Maybe for some but not for us & we are in pretty good shape. 3 miles with the last 1/2 mile pretty much straight up. BUT once you get to the top the views are amazing!

This hike has a great starting point at the Albany covered bridge. The counterclockwise route is steeper but still quite easy. Views are nice but not as good as some other nearby hikes of similar difficulty.

Don't miss the top! You need to take a short side trail to get up to the ledges and you'll walk right past the turn-off near the top if you are not paying attention. This isn't an easy hike but average families won't have a...More
