A short hike through forest up to an ordinary ridge with a few rock outcroppings, and surprisingly good views.

If you are in the Chester area and want a good view but don't want to attempt Mount Harkness yet, this is an good alternative.

But don't forget to prepare and do Harkness some other time.
