The trail gradually slopes upward from South to North, with a few difficult climbing areas. There are small parking areas on either end of the trail, and if you hike the whole way, you’ll want to have a car on each end. To the south, the parking is along route 33, and to the north, the parking is along Smoke Hole Road.
