This was a great hike. Steep and challenging for a large part of the middle. Good to do on a sunny day as all except the top is in tree cover. Beautiful view of Moosehead from the top. We were not able to start this until later in the afternoon and I was afraid we would run out of day light but we didn't. We hiked at a steady speed with a couple stops to grab a drink and took plenty of time at the top to take pictures and it took us 3 1/2 hours. Definitely would do again.

Rustic with no frills. I hike 2-3 mountains each year and was able to complete this round trip in 3 1/2 hours including lunch at the top
It was well marked but a little hard to tell when I was at the summit.

Nice hike up and it is all up. We were hoping we would climb above the clouds, but not this time. We still enjoyed the summit, even though the fog robbed us of the magnificent views. There are a couple creek crossings where the log bridges were rotten or broken and almost all of the log walk ways through the muddy areas were rotten. The trail could use a little love in places.

Great trail with great views at the summit (ignoring the cell-tower)! The trail up gets steep near the end, but its only 2.2 miles up (4.5 round trip) and great for a slow day-hike or a fast-paced afternoon hike. A really fun, rewarding trail. I do it every year!

Quick elevation increase, but a great trail. Amazing views from the top!!
