3-4 miles round trip. Easy terrain, but breathtaking views. We went during fall, the surroundings were so beautiful. Also we started around 8 in the morning, therefore there were very few hikers at that time.

We enjoyed the views of the mountain, but I would not recommend going on Columbus Day weekend, the lines were very long for everything.

Three miles round trip. If you have two cars you can start at the parking area below the mountain and go up one side and end at the parking lot for the Flume. We went up and back from the Flume - nice to have bathrooms nearby when you are done. It's steep, and long, but so extraordinary at the... More

Lots of parking at the trailhead. We went up the blue trail which was well marked. The trip up is about 3.6 miles; we took our time and the entire hike took about three hours up and down total. It is a 1,300 foot elevation gain and the trail is steep in some parts. I would say it is a... More

We got the meal plan so everyone had breakfast and dinner each day. The food is quite good and very generous portions. We... More

This place used to show a head on the side of the mountain. Apparently it was destroyed around 2003 in a storm (if I recall correctly). The sight though, has installed several poles with notches along the arm which, if sighted along, show you what the actual head looked like. Very neat idea. It can be a bit hard for... More

This is a great hike to take when in the area. From certain places on the highway one can see the outline of the Indian head that was on the nickel. Great views.
