Awesome reasonably strenuous hike, and so many good views as a reward! 360-degree stuff at the summit.

Gorgeous little hidden gem! A stunning geographic feature you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere in the area! Storehouse pond is a very short hike, however, with a very short steep section that might challenge some.
