Comments
Comments: 9 Trails, mostly just segments of them, but they add up to merely 3.5 miles or so. Still, you get disproportionate vertical because you end up climbing the mountain nearly twice. This nice loop to the summit avoids the crowds, except at the summit near the parking lot. THe top of Old Indian Trail, until the summit plateau, is steep and rocky - better for ascending as I like trails.
