    Challenging but very fun hike. Moderately steep 3.4 miles to Wittenberg summit with epic 180 degree+ views. Continuing another mile or so to Cornell you must traverse a fairly tight scramble known as the Cornell Crack. I had no trouble but others in my party had reservations, so I dropped a rope to give them some assurance on the way up. Our dog also needed a boost up; it was harder for her on the way down. Cornell has very limited views. After the return trip down to Woodland Valley we had a nice birthday celebration in the parking lot. Note that parking at the state park is $6 per car. Bathrooms and water available there.
