From the western end of the parking area, cross the road and proceed south on the joint Jessup (yellow), Sweet Clover (white) and Highlands (teal diamond) Trails, which climb gently to the crest of a field and then descend to a woods road. To the right, you can see Schunemunk Mountain, which you'll soon climb.

Turn right onto the woods road. In about 500 feet, you'll come to a junction...

A number of expansive views + some interesting rocks makes this a good hike. Most of the climbing is done on the sweet clover trail.

I hiked this route in mid May and found the above directions very accurate. The beginning and the end of this route travels through a beautiful meadow that had wildflowers and butterflies.'s picture
