The view from Ilgenstein Rock is beautiful and I wish I had saved it for a clear day. The heat and humidity was high early in the morning and the gnats and skeeters accompanied me the entire 9 miles. BUT this was a great hike despite! I scared a couple of deer, I have know clue how I got so close without them or me knowing it. Paybacks though, 15 minutes later a bear scared me. Trails are well marked and maintained.
