Start at the gravel parking lot at the top of Hurricane Mt. Road. Starts flat but very rocky with alot of roots and flush cut stumps. Start the climb and enter into the Green Hils Preserve passing by the welcome board. Continue to the intersection with the Cranmore Mt. trail and stay left on the Black cap trail. Ahead at the trail intersection stay left to continue on the same trail. Follow the narrow trail until the exposed ledge then follow the red blazes painted on the ledge to the summit. Follow the same path back to the Cranmore Mt. trail intersection and stay left to get onto the Cranmore trail. Follow the trail, a gentle downhill, to the gravel access road on Cranmore at the cell tower. Follow the gravel road to the summit cabin past the three chairlifts. Follow the trail back to the intersection with the Black Cap trail and then follow it back down to the gravel lot. Great uphill to get started with a nice gentle downhill followed by the same on the uphill ending with a very fast descent to the parking lot.
