I did it via the Little Stony Creek Trail, the Tuscarora Trail and Mill Mountain Trail, continuing to Big Schloss. I stood on the Mill Mountain benchmark, so it counts! It was a very pleasant hike, with nice views from an overlook north of Big Schloss and from Big Schloss itself.
While Doing Big Schloss Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2011
Did this with my wife. We started up the Little Stony Creek Trail, then the Tuscarora Trail, then the Mill Mountain Trail, over the top of this, to Big Schloss. Some good views of this mountain from Big Schloss.
Sugar Knob and Mill Mountain Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2011
I parked at the Big Schloss Cutoff trailhead and hiked on FR 92 for about 0.5 miles before starting up the Little Stony Creek Trail. It had rained for the past couple of days, but it turned sunny on Friday. The colors in the forest were really beautiful.
I stopped at the Sugar Knob Cabin for the day, and fell asleep reading cheesy science fiction. The next morning, I hiked to the summit of Sugar Knob. I packed up my stuff, hiked over Mill Mountain, followed the Mill Mountain Trail to the Big Schloss Cutoff Trail, and went back down to my car.
