Come prepared for this hike. Temperature can change quickly. There will be lots of other hikers and many bring dogs. Great way to spend a day with friends. Amazing views.

Beautiful trail! Sometimes a bit hard to see the signs when there is snow, but overall great.

Amazing hike when the foliage is at peak color. I hiked to the summit via Monroe Trail to Dean Trail to the Long Trail and took the Monroe Trail down. I was a fairly strenuous hike to the summit, especially after you join the Long Trail. That being said, the Long Trail was the most beautiful part of the hike. It was extremely peaceful because very few people go this way. The summit was beautiful but very crowded. Total hike about 7 miles took 3.5 hours with stops for water and pics. Highly recommended.

Absolutely amazing in the Fall. Pretty Moderate climb with a steady incline that eventually lead to some light rock scrambling near the top. the veiw from the hump itself is awesome, but the wind is very strong.

Great trail, VERY windy once you're above 3500 feet- enough where at the top my buddy and I were having trouble standing. Well marked, the Monroe trail is great and family friendly, but if you're looking for a little more difficulty out of it, split off Monroe and take the alpine trail. That'll put you towards the Bomber wing and a steeper assent. Happy Trails.

Absolutely wonderful! It was a 3 hour hike around trip & the views were by far some of the best in Vermont.

it was great. more and more difficult as you go but over all pretty quick hike. peak is very rewarding. my suggestion, go early. started at 6 am with not too much traffic. on my way down around 10 am we passed about 25 groups of people.

I am from Nebraska, it was very enjoyable challenging. Absolutely gorgeous views all the way up with breathtaking 360 views on top. I highly recommend trail for the adventurous type hiker. Not a trail for someone looking for mild hike though.

This trail was very well marked and easy to follow. It was quite a climb on the way up at some parts, but the view was well worth it! Be sure to pack water and snacks for the top :)

Great hike with good trails really a good hike but I'm not sure I'd classify it as difficult. Although I suppose it does depend on the shape your in!
Highly recommend it!

This was a difficult hike with the greatest challenge coming in the final ascent(.3 miles). The 360 degree view is well worth it.
