Awesome hike with the kids. Took the Loop Trail up through Fat Man's Misery. The views from the summit were amazing. We visited Tumbledown Pond then followed the Brook Trail back down. Overall distance was about 6.5 miles and took about 4.5 hrs to complete.

I did the loop trail > Parker ridge trail > broke trail which follows a similar but longer route shape to what's pictured above. That map above will take you to LOOP TRAIL which gets advanced eventually - one of the most challenging rock scrambles (and fun) I've ever done. PLEASE BE CAREFUL there is a VERY TERRITORIAL HAWK near where the broke trail and the ridge trail meet. It dived bombed my head and I basically had to fight it with a stick!

Great hike. Moderately hard but perfect for a day hike. Lake at the top is pretty cool.

Lots of climbing - the kids loved it. More vertical than expected. Lake was beautiful and a great place for a packed picnic.

Beautiful hike! I had a dog with me so we did the brook trailhead. Plenty of brooks and pond at the top for her to cool off in! Continued on to the peak then turned around and took brook back down. Challenging for new hikers but not hard! Very fun and enjoyable, incredible views the whole time. WARNING: BRING BUG SPRAY!! My one complaint :/ the bugs were almost unbearable head in back down.

Hiked the loop trail today. Great trail, well marked, don't attempt if you are not In shape. The chimney is so neat and the views are incredible.

I hiked this with my boyfriend today, it was strenuous and that's exactly what we were liking for. We had to tool around on the ice in the chimney, but we made through and I even went swimming. The water was nice and refreshing, but too cold for my boyfriend to set foot in.

I hiked Tumbledown's Loop Trail on April 29th and the Chimney was still iced over. There was only one metal ring that was breaking through the ice at that point.

For being an extreme beginner, the trail was strenuous but not impossible.

Worth it, and can't wait to get up there again!

We hike Tumbledown every year. We took Brook Trail on 4/20/16 - great hiking! However, other hikers told us Loop Trail is iced over and they had to turn around. The Chimney is blocked by iced.

Great hike with beautiful views at the top! Well worth it! We chose the Brook trail and it was a great choice especially for having a dog!

great hike, good views. Enjoyed the lake at the top. Happy there was still trees to give some cover throughout the night. Fantastic.

Great trails. Absolutely zero reception, so I didn't have access to my map anymore, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!
