Points of Interest

1. Nice Bridge over the Water

Near the start of the hike

2. Summit in the trees

The pictures below, which show the summit, explain why I call this unrewarding. The only people I know that would do this are those working on their Northeast 4,000 footer list.

3. Waterfalls

A pretty cascading stream on a side trail. Not too interesting, but relaxing and much better eyesight then the summit you just came from.
