Cold day. Great views  Sucess!

Very cold, but worth the hike up from the AT to see the great view.

Worth the Donation  Sucess!

Worth the $7 donation to the sanctuary, or even the long hike up the AT to the main rock pile.

River of Rocks  Sucess!

Climbed this in the 1990s as a kid ... loved the river of rocks and the escarpment trail. Boulder hopping was one of my favorite past times!

Fabulous birding  Sucess!

In the mid-90s, before getting into alpinism, watched the fall raptor migration here. Quite splendid!

great fall day  Sucess!

Great family hike. We went to the top, but came back the way we went up. We wanted to keep going but the trail was too steep going down to the skyline trail(we have a baby backpack). It was a wonderful afternoon. Educational too. Lots of bird info.

I haven't been up there in a while, but this was one of the best hikes close to Philadelphia. You could sit on the rocks overlooking the North side with great views. Hawks will frequently fly near you.

Beautiful day that was spring like. I had the whole mountain to myself and the views were the best in PA I've seen. I saw tons of raptors all over the place! Wonderful place and hope to go back a lot!
