Old Rag Mountain Climbing Notes

Jake Jones from UNITED STATES writes:

If you're going to Old Rag specifically to climb, the shorter, easier approach to the summit is on the western side of the mountain via the Berry Hollow trailhead/Saddle Trail. It's about 800ft less elevation gain and over a mile shorter than the Old Rag/Ridge Trail approach.
