Great easy hike with a couple challenging parts. Went in October and still fairly dry. Pretty windy near the summit. My dog loves it. Definately less traffic than other mountains, perfect for a solo hike
My family and I climbed Mt Major today. We had a all different ages from 7 to 65. We went up and down the Orange trail (Boulder Loop). It had about 3 sections that were a bit tricky going up and down. However, we had a blast! The view from the summit was beautiful. The markers were easy to spot when we were climbing up. But, it was getting pretty dark (and eventually it was dark!) as we were descending and it got harder to spot the orange markers. It took us an hour and a half to get up and an hour and a half to get down.
Blue trail on the ascent and Orange on the way down. Very nice views some definite scrambling down rock ledge on the way down on the Orange trail.
awesome beginners trail

Short easy hike. Kid and dog friendly
Great trail for all levels
Great views and great with a dog
Up Boulder trail, down Mt. Major trail. Pretty wet, but trails are well marked.
Great hike and views. Up blue Mount Major trail and down yellow brookside trail.
Great hike, 3 different options to go to the peak. I believe the red was the most direct/difficult path. Amazing views
Great Lake view at top. Very rocky trail
