Heybrook Lookout Trail 1070


One of the first trails to be snow-free in this area, this is an ideal early-season hike. Begin climbing through a second-growth forest regenerated from clear cutting in the 1920s. The observation deck of the lookout is open to the public and offers outstanding views of Mount Persis, Mount Index and Philadelphia Mountain with other distant peaks to the east.
