Fodor's Review

A steep, serpentine, half-mile climb leads to a series of carvings chiseled into a prominent sandstone outcropping. With only slight sarcasm, the whitewashed carvings are noted as the "Rushmore of the East." According to local lore, Zadock Pratt commissioned sculptor Andrew W. Pearse to create the cameo-like carvings in exchange for room and board. Images of Pratt's son George, a colonel who was killed in the Civil War, and Pratt's favorite horse are visible from the mountainside

as you hike.
