Comments
Comments: The DCR staff member asked me at the summit what my favorite trail on the mountain was. I said the West side trail, but later I thought, I think the approach from the Audubon sanctuary is my favorite. It is 3.6 miles from the Audubon visitor parking lot to the summit, and most of it is wonderful woods walking.
