Multiple carriage trail and easy hiking trails to the top which overlooks Woodstock. Park Ranger tours are available. A great place for a leisurely afternoon. Especially good during Fall foliage.

It is an easy hike from the parking lot off Prosper Road. Not too much elevation and what there is is gradual. The view is worth it!
