Great hike. It was mostly flat and not very difficult until the steep climb at the end. 1hr 45min up and an 1hr 20min on the way down. Great for leaf peeping this time a year.
We wanted to go to the fire tower but wanted to add some distance so we entered the park on the Nottingham side. Didn't make it to the fire tower but got to the south ridge summit. Nice hike with some minor elevation until get to the last part of the summit where it gets steep. Good for dogs with some nice bridge crossings. No major brook crossings that didn't have bridges.
Once at the summit, approaching from this location, the trail kind of ends in a little 6' or so drop that seems like it would be difficult to return by, especially with dogs and since we always bring a dog...
We'll do this trail again and take the South Ridge Connector the next time and approach the fire tower from the other side.
