Beautiful early morning hike.  There is a 10$ fee at the entrance, if you arrive earlier than 8:00, you can leave cash in an envelope or after your hike at the exit.  They have change but only accept cash.  I saw deer, wild turkeys, butterflies and no people. Had the summit to myself.  Beautiful cool morning and the ground sparkles like gold.  Elevation at the beginning-first two miles is a morning wake-you up.:) Took me 4.19 and 10.2 miles-I take a lot of pics and enjoyed the view. The tower at the top is no longer accessible-to climb, just to look at.
