“Head up to the Ashokan High Point with breathtaking views.”— Mirek Wierzbicki
Cross the bridge over the Kanape Brook. The trail is blazed with red discs. The first 2.7 miles of the trail follows an old woods road with a gradual incline along the scenic Kanape Brook. While you run, you'll hear the brook and cross a few bridges. At the 2.7-mile point, turn left as the arrow shows. Now the trail is narrow.
After 200 feet, you'll see another trail junction. The trail to the left is longer but generally easier to climb. Right takes you up to the peak. Go right. This trail gains about 1,000 feet over a mile and there are several steep areas with stone steps. At 3.8 miles, you'll come to a viewpoint. The summit is another 400 feet further. Now you can descend the same way you came up or loop around.
