Ilgenstein Rock is a long ridge with good views that extends from Bear Swamp Lake to the North Cape on Pierson Ridge. The actual summit of Ilgenstein Rock is just North of the viewpoint along the Hoeferlin Memorial Trail.
The photograph above was taken from the North shore of Bear Swamp Lake.
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.
