Located in the Sleeping Giant Park System, the White trail offers spectacular views off the giant's chest, and torso. Some sections are very steep up and down, with some steps as high as 3 ft vertical. The trail is well marked, though sometimes you have to make sure you are still on the right trail.

I usually park at the end of the trail (not in the normal parking lot) and hike to the beginning and then back. It makes for a nice round trip, and there are facilities (bathroom and water) in the state park section.
