The mountain is named for a rock formation on the southern end of the peak. It is the only 4000 footer in NH without a maintained trail, the main access being a slide on the west side of the mountain reached from the Lincoln Brook trail. From the Lincoln Woods trailhead, take the Wilderness Trail to Franconia Falls, then the Franconia Falls trail to Lincoln Brook trail, around the mountain to the slide, which is marked with a large cairn. There are several steam crossings along the way which are difficult in high water. The summit is completely treed in, but there are some nice views from the slide.
