The freshest time of year to be out hiking is early spring. Landscapes become a lush green and flowers begin to bloom all over. The Dragons Tooth hike starts on a spur trail at parking and connects with the Appalachian Trail at Lost Spectacles Gap.
Though the trail is over 2 miles all up, many vistas along the way make the hike amusing. A great camping area exists at the ridge gap about half way into the climb. Make sure you have good footwear for the final climb to the summit, it's almost nothing but rock.
