Did a loop from the park HQ to North Mt and back by adding in a visit to South Mt. Starting trails over North Mt were clearly marked and easy to follow. Trails around the Boulder Trail area had poor signage but good blazes on the trail. Signage from the fire tower was a little poor but in retrospect it should have been obvious. Trail conditions were mixed with plenty of clear trails but a fair amount of ice in spots. Descending off North Mt was fairly treacherous. GPS recorded track showed a 10 mile trip that took just about 4 hours to complete with the last hour after sunset. (firetower sunset view was perfect) Some type of traction is highly recommended.

Fun trip up the mountain, but was very confusing getting back to the car. Need to increase the amount of signs to make it easier to find the way back down
Great hike and great views.
The Boulder field is pretty cool, lots to see. On the top of the north peak there is a large green metal marker used by WWII bomber pilots returning from Europe for navigation.
LOVED this hike/nature walk!! So many trails to make it as short or as long as you want. We did ten miles that were quite easy. Just beautiful forests, picturesque ponds, and amazing boulders! Such a great day!! Definitely will do it again!!!
hiked to fire tower which was under construction good to see it getting fixed not so good for the view but still OK if you find a good rock over looking the lake to have lunch all and all a good steep hike
Beautiful and wonderful spot to get a workout.......good spot for a group hike.
Boulder trail is great for kids. Nice easy walk and great views. Little ones didn't have the energy to make it to the tower. Will try again at a later date. Bring deep woods bug spray!!! We were good with that, others without we're not so happy
