“Great local climb with outstanding views.”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

This is a great local climb with outstanding views in many directions. The entrance is hard to find. I have hiked here many times and I still drive by the parking area sometimes. We used to run this loop and do it in under 40 minutes but now I plan on an hour. That is walking at a brisk pace. There is only room for about three cars at the pull in but there usually is a space.
Take Buffalo Road in Rumney past the rock climbing day use parking areas about 3/4 of a mile. Keep looking on the right once the cliffs end for a pull in to the woods about 30' deep. There is a small sign once you pull in.
The trail starts off gentle for a few hundred yards then climbs fairly steep up the spine of the hill for a sustained period. There is a stream for the dogs on the lower 3rd and water spots near the top. At the top of the sustained climb there is a loop you should not miss. This is the scenic part with all the views. Follow the yellow blazes on the rock and trees around a nice vista.
