Park in the lot just inside the gate. Hop on Hill Trail at the end of the lot. Hoof it up the harder-than-it-looks incline that gives the trail its name, and veer right onto the Cove Trail at the top. Walk two-tenths of a mile or so, and you are now in the middle of one of the highest-quality forests left in Mecklenburg County.
