Route: Hedgehog Mountain Trail

While in the past this may have been a roadwalk, a trail has been marked which joins and separates from it in a few places (in particular to avoid 4WD mud pits).

Superb western views from the summit ledges.

Directions to trailhead: From Hillsborough, take Route 149 south, then take a right onto Old County Road. Take a right onto Hedgehog Mountain Road. The Hedgehog Forest parking area will eventually be on the right (the tenth of a mile of road was rough in spring 2014). The Hedgehog Mountain Trail is just beyond the parking area, on the opposite side of the road.
