Watching the Sunrise, Haystack Mountain (Castle Hill)

Where:   Haystack Mountain is located in Castle Hill, near Presque Isle

What:   A short but steep trail leads to rewarding views of the entire area.

Trails:   As far as I could tell, there was just one blue blazed trail.  It was approximately 6/10 of a mile roundtrip.  Here is a trail map of my hike.

Tick Index:   Low, the trail was well worn with little grass.


I am traveling for work, and decided to get up early and watch the sunrise from the summit of Haystack Mountain.  The trail is short and was not difficult to climb in the dark (I had a headlamp).   The views from the top were well worth the effort.

The County is DARK at night!
