This is a beautiful hike in the Spring or Summer. It's long but moderate most of the way. I went with a group of friends which made it even more enjoyable as we were able to chat and rest as we wanted on the way up. The top rewards you with a small waterfall most years. Views are excellent.

I hiked it on a beautiful day. The last sign that says it's a mile to the top is slightly incorrect it's about a mile and a half. Awesome hike I do it once a year!

Wilson Homestead (via Pine Creek)

The area is a lot cooler (temp wise) than most people would think, so the trail is practically abandoned in the summer months.

I saw two wild Burros that seemed so tame I could have probably approached closer but I did not chance it nor did I think it appropriate.

The homestead is marked a foundation and a there is a clearing that some call the garden near by. The Garden always seems damp and there is PLENTY of shade to rest and cool down should you be hiking in the summer like I do.
