Needs more detail

I have heard this trail isn't that straightforward, and the route to the highpoint marker is not perfectly clear. I would love to see more detail, so people don't get lost.

I did not see distance anywhwere on page.. I do not think the mileage is not alot.. probably a mile or a mile and half each way. the trail is pretty easy to follow. there is no sign for Fissell from the road, but you can easy find the red blaze marks opposite the AMC parking lot. make sure to continue over Round Mtn and then up Fissell, and then down a couple hundred yards the other side to locate Conn High Point. Marked by a cairn and small green geo marker.. mistake ppl seem to make is climbing Round Mtn and thinking its Fissell, not so!
