Route Description

This route follows a powerline cut up the ridgeline from the auto road that connects Huntingdon to Williamsburg. The trail is steady in it's rise and is very well maintained. It follows the ridgeline to the highest point in the mountain above Huntingdon and the views are beautiful in all directions for almost the entire hike. On a clear weather day you can see between 50-75 miles. This hiking route is only 4 miles roundtrip, but is well worth it for the views. You'll gain only about 400 feet on this route up the mountain since the auto road from which you depart is almost at the ridgecrest.

Essential Gear

Snacks and comfortable shoes.
