1 hour drive, but worth it. This is an intense hike. I would recommend taking a whole day for it. Pack lots of water and take it slow. You’ll be so proud of yourself when you reach the pinnacle! Not recommended for children. Walking sticks would be helpful but not needed for all.

Every fall we go here to pick apples and taste the most delicious (seasonal- check with the orchard to see which weekends they will be there) donuts from Dizzy’s dozen. I recommend the cinnamon sugar and maple! A must try! Oh and you can pick some apples form the orchard while you’re there ;)
