Dragons Tooth is a spectacular rock formation located on top of Cove Mountain. The 2.3 mile trail leading to Dragons Tooth is a gradual uphill climb for the first mile or so. Then it joins the Appalachian Trail and begins to climb steeply. This part of the hike is fairly strenuous, with some rock scrambling near the top. You'll need your hands and feet to climb the last rocky sections to reach "The Tooth", a 35' rock spire. At the top, you'll be rewarded with a jumble of rugged rock outcroppings and panoramic views. Allow plenty of time and daylight to do this challenging hike. Many hikers will take six hours or more to complete the hike.
