The path itself is an easy 15-20 minute walk up a mild slope. Even so, Jerimoth Hill was once regarded as the most inaccessible high point in the United States by the Highpointers Club. This was due to its being situated amid private property, and those property owners being notoriously inhospitable to trespassers. There's lore involving shotguns and death threats to attempted "climbers."
