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.
Definitely a challenging hike! Really great, well marked. Took our dog and she did fine! Excellent views at the top.
Absolutely wonderful! It was a 3 hour hike around trip & the views were by far some of the best in Vermont.
amazing views from the summit!
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.
Really enjoyed this hike!
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!
Lots of fun.
I love the challenge the varied terrain of this trail provides.
This was a difficult hike with the greatest challenge coming in the final ascent(.3 miles). The 360 degree view is well worth it.
Fairly easy hike with a great view at the top
My first hike in the Green Mountains. Wife and I took a vacation to visit friends in Boston, but one of our nights we spent in Stowe. We had breakfast at our inn at 8am so it took us a little time to get to the trailhead in Waterbury, probably didn't get started until 10. Hot day but there was a lot of tree cover for shade, up until the last .3 miles. Monroe trail is clearly marked. Snowfall was light this winter so many of the lower elevation streams are dry, but after the first 1.5 miles there will be slippery runoff areas. The trail starts on dirt in Maple and Birch forest, and climbs upwards basically the entire time. Slowly the trail turns more rocky and you'll be stepping up granite slabs, these can be dangerous when wet. The views at the top are extremely rewarding, but you'll share them with many other hikers, so keep that in mind if you're looking to get away from people. Also, bring bug spray, I got at least 12 mosquito bites while at the top. If you use this trail, please sign in at the trailhead.
