If you love open ridge hiking you will love this hike!

As you reach the ridge, you will notice a short spur trail to see the viewpoint from the western end of the ridge. It is approximately 2 miles to the ridge from the trailhead. The ridge runs 1.5 miles to the summit. There are several small rock cairns that guide your way. The majority of the ridge walk is open rock with a few scrambles.

The ridge and summit offers endless views of the surrounding mountains including many high peaks and Lake Champlain.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
