Torne Mountain Loop
Great short hike with everything. Mountain streams, several attractive views, beautiful woods and rugged trails with some scrambling.

Strenuous at Moments, but Worth It!
This hike isn't easy, but also not too difficult. The views are beautiful, the workout is great, and it takes just the right amount of time. You may see a few folks, but no large crowds generally. I did this in the winter and it was awesome!

thanks for responding to this. All i can tell you is that we put those gps coordinates into our Garmin and they directed us to the parking lot at Weis Ecology Center.
