For this 5 mile hike, we exploree Big Incline and Little Incline to the top of Thousand Steps and then descended to hike over to the Rt. 22 crossing and through Mapleton. This hike is moderately difficult with the climb and descent down the Steps. Since a loop is involved, you can do just the loop or from the Steps to Mapleton. We'll met on Route 22 at the base of the 1000 Steps.
