What to know

Begins at the overlook shelter visible in the drive up the mountain to the park. There is a narrow shelf called a bench that encircles the entire mountain. In the early 1900s, this bench featured a road. Today the bench is a trail route through a woodland that teems with large trees and wildlife. Fern Lake, remnants of historic springs, and steps that were a part of an early resort development are still visible. The trail is level in most places and offers views from the mountain, especially during seasons from late fall through early spring. For a map and more information, visit
