I started out a little later than I wanted, but it was still a clear and beautiful day when I arrived at around 10 am! This is a short hike but there is a bit of mildly challenging elevation gain. I kept going after getting to the knob and added about half a mile to the hike, but I could've gone further if I started earlier!

The trail was muddy and wet from recent rains but still very hikeable. I hiked with my two dogs, and only saw two other groups of hikers, one with a dog and one without. It seemed like the area was getting more crowded when I was heading down, so  I am glad I still started early enough to miss any crowds that were forming. It only took me about an hour to hike but I stopped at the top and ate a snack and hung out. It was very windy up on the knob but the 360 views were beautiful!

There are campsites in the area and I think if I do this again, I'll camp overnight and catch the sunset from this peak then choose another peak nearby/on the way home to get two done in one trip! Its a two hour drive one way for me so next time I'll make a plan to hike more efficiently, but overall I have no complaints!  I don't know why some of my photos are uploading upside down but I don't have time to fix them so thats just how they'll be i guess! 😛 See you on the next one!
