DescriptionThe elevation gain on this trail would be intense if it weren't so gradually graded. As is, this is a long hike and you may as well plan for a half day on the mountain, but it isn't too difficult. When you reach the summit, you'll find the remains of an observatory that the Smithsonian Institution used in the 20s; the trail is, in fact, the mule path they used to acquire supplies.
