The roads leading to the summit winding and provide gorgeous views. We took a tour around the summit, to see where our son proposed. We ate dinner at the lodge at the top, which provided a fantastic sunset and delicious dinner. This is a definite...More

You really feel like you're in Heaven. Presently the monument is under repair. About time, in memory of our Veterans! I'll review, again, when it's complete.

Response from NWmailman | Reviewed this property |
Cloud level can be low enough to obscure the tower, as it was during our visit recently. We could see it, but as if through thick fog. The road to the summit may be closed in winter due to snow. Also, FYI: On our recent... More
How far from the main road (N. Main Street) to the top of the mountain?

It wasn't too far to go to the top. Luckily there was no traffic. Driving up was less than half hour. The only problem you might encounter is when the parking lot gets full. But cars pull out so wait might not be long... More

I am looking for a place to park my car, maybe part way up the mountain, backpack on the Appalachian Trail and camp overnight (to celebrate my 80th birthday). I would return the same way or preferably do a loop to another parking area...either carpool or get a taxi to the starting point. I am looking for a moderate hike (neither easy or strenuous). Do you have any suggestions?
