The hike is made up of 4 segments with an elevation gain of over 1500 feet. The first segment is a pleasant 1.2 miles which covers an open wooded area and ends at the first overlook. Segment 2 is the most strenuous, taking us on a fairly eroded section of the trail with the most extreme elevation change. This section is only .35 miles, although it will feel further than this. The third segment is a short walk to the second overlook at “The Boulders” which is a side trail off the US Army training camp area. The final Segment 4 takes us to the summit only .6 miles. Before reaching the grassy field on the top, we will stop at a number of spots to take in the vistas. The highlight will be the stone outcropping on which many hikers have posed for pics which make them appear fearless as they sit on the protruding rock formation. After walking along the western and southern rims, we will summit. Then we will make our way back to the trailhead.
