We were on a schedule but had some time to check out Moss Glen and stroll some of the trail. There was 4 inches of snow and it made for a beautiful picturesque walk. Parts of the stream were frozen which looked really cool and the falls in winter were incredible...truly no words can fit the bill! There is a little bit of an incline to get to the the falls and after that the trail levels out and is pretty darn flat. We walked some of it but turned around part way as we had to be somewhere. I can't wait to come back again and spend more time here!! This is an easy hike for sure and a photographers dream!
Completed this today on 11/6/16 in shorts and sneakers. Top half is a sheet of ice on wet rock and leaves (death) with a steam running down it. We made it but definitely the most difficult hike we have done in a while. Still giving it five stars even though there was a foot of snow at the top and no view. Feel like a king when you finish.
Wonderful, challenging trail for us to do as an athletic couple with our dog. some pretty steep sections that were fun to climb up, and retired you to get your hands dirty a bit. some of the downward sections could be a little hard for someone with bad joints or balance issues
This trail is very rocky and challenging, especially the last couple of tenths of mile. It was dry when I hiked it, and if it's wet it could be difficult and dangerous. If you're older (I'm 55 and in good shape) it will be a cardiac challenge on the way up and an orthopedic challenge on the way down. Trekking poles will take some stress off the knees. The view at the top is 5 star, but the hike in and out is not very interesting.
