Trail Notes:

From the parking area head up the blue blazed trail on the right. Keep your eyes peeled for a bear that many hikers have claimed to seen. Please remember bears are only cute from a distance. Leave any and all beef jerky in the car.
0.5 come to an intersection and stay on the blue blazed trail up the rest of the mountain.
0.9 after the trail becomes steep and rock finish the climb to the top of the rocks
Return trip: retrace your steps straight back down the mountain

Personal Recommendations:

This hike is a popular one for college kids because its a simple one mile hike that takes you right to the top. It's a fun one to do with a group because there's plenty of space at the top to hang out and capture really cool pictures.
