This loop will ascend you through woodlands and orchards to where twin ancient formations of exposed bedrock offer panoramic views of the Tyringham Valley.

You can choose to start the loop in either direction.  I chose to start of and take a right.  You will pass through a section of wide open meadow full of goldenrod.  Then as you ascend you will enter the woodlands featuring many stone walls.  Eventually the trail meets up with the Appalachian trail.

As you continue on the Appalachian trail you will reach the sub-summit offering views north.  You will then re-enter the woods and ascend to the true summit.  The views extend up the Tyringham Valley to the east. 

As you start your descent you will eventually head left off of the Appalachian trail.  Shortly after on your right you cannot miss the rock anomaly known as "Rabbit Rock". 

As you near the end of your hike the trail provides glimpses through the trees of the valley.
