Easy hike, a little tough at points in the trail when reaching the summit. Trails were well maintained.

Trails are well marked and maintained. You can get a map from the front desk if you decide to start at the resort. On the resort map, I took points 1-2-3-4-5-6. It took about 2 hours total - 1 hr 20 minutes up, 40 minutes down. There are many ways you can choose to go up.

very nice hike up from the bottom at the lodge. Took the family 2.5 hours up but was worth it.

Fantastic day. Upper sixties, slight breeze, blue skies. We put on micro spikes about half up. It's packed snow and ice. Only post hole once. You can bare boot up, but the spikes made it much more pleasant. Especially on the way down.

Great hike ! We had a beautiful day. Only had one problem as someone had a sigh and markers stating wrong way when in fact it was the correct route. Had to backtrack a bit.

The trail-head is off of Rt 242 and begins abruptly. You will first encounter a small lean-to (Atlas Vally Shelter) where you can register your name and destination *this is not an overnight shelter. The trail is white blazed, which was not very helpful considering the blowing snow that began to coat the sides of trees surrounding me. So be sure to do your research and review a trail map before your hike. The climb is gradual during the first mile of the trek and from there climbs more steeply. At about mile 1.3 you will come to a ski trail that you will continue straight across. Once across the ski trail you will clamber up steep rocks to find yourself at the summit and the upper station of the Jay Peak Tramway. As I approached the summit the sky began to clear and I had unbelievable views of Owls Head Mountain to the North in Canada and the surrounding Green Mountains. The decent was very easy because of the powdery snow and was down in half the time it took me to accent. I would highly recommend this trail to any and all.
