Ascent Trip ReportGreat hike and views from the rocky ridge at the peak. Hiked with my kids, ages 6,7,10 and 12 - Had to assist my 6 year old on the scramble of the trail to the ridge peak. Nice little hut at the top - my kids thought it was in bad shape but for an AT hiker it would be a nice little find.
At back of Dresher road loop, go left into blue trail and drive as far as you can. I parked at area being cleared for new houses. The just hike up Blue trail and turn Right on AT, go slightly past peak and find slight trail through trees to rocks below the hut.
