An excellent trek for experienced hikers hoping for a great workout.

The Long Trail to the Chin and Profanity Trail is a 3.8 mile hike, with 2765 feet of elevation gain. Prepare accordingly: this trail is best trafficked on a sunny day, when the trail is free from mud or slippery rocks and roots. Part of this trail involves some scrambling above a cliff edge. The summit is open and fairly flat, so there is lots of space to spread out, enjoy the views, and have a picnic lunch. 

The trail features beautiful views year-round, with gorgeous spring flowers and fall colors. Dogs are allowed on this trail, but bring a leash!
