Comments
Comments: Great fall hike (with summer weather!) using West Side Trail, Semuhenna Trail, and Harrington Trail to the summit. Lots of people out on the trails and on the summit. We didn't stay long on the summit, as there were a lot of people and we've hiked this mountain before. It probably would've been better to do this loop in reverse, going up West Side Trail to Old Indian Trail to summit first. The leaves can make the trail a little slippery, so we did a lot of rock hopping when we ran down parts of Old Indian and West Side trails.
