View was not that great due to overgrown brush. If you're looking for a nice workout it would be a great choice.

Pack bug spray due to swampy terrain

Nice hike! Good, steady incline to the summit. Great views @ the top & of "Cascades" waterfall.

Well designed trail. The cascades are amazing!!! Great view from the vista just below the summit. I would recommend this trail and will definitely return.

I was not able to find this trail head. It doesn't appear to be marked. The nearby landowners are inhospitable with their signage; the hiker is made to feel unwelcome.

A gentle lead in before the climb.... Blue Ridge Mtn. stands pretty much alone, so the vista just before the the summit offers a unique view of the SW!

Highly recommend this trail to the summit of Blue Ridge Mountain near Mendon, VT. Views are limited because of tree cover, however there is an outcropping 0.1mi from the summit with views to the southwest.

Very private trail in the winter. NO PARKING available at trailhead so that's a bummer. We had to get permission from the hotel at the foot of the road to park and walked up the road for 7/10th of a mile. But the trail was nice. We didn't make it to the top since we had our small dogs with us that day. Next time!
