Great hike. GPS had me closer to 4.5 miles. Definitely would not consider this a difficult hike. Starting from Underhill State Park, you take an easy trail and follow the road to the trail head, from there is gets a little more difficult. The hike reminded me of a stairmaster. Amazing views at the top.

Great time, not as hard as people make it out to sound, get there early, and stay on the trail, tried to "blaze my own" but just ended up doing some rock climbing that was unsafe and probably shouldn't have done! Anyway, great hike and beautiful view!

Absolutely breathing taking. The entire way up and down. Amazing views all around. Very steep. Absolutely worth it. This was hands down my favorite hike.

Nice hike. Began at Underhill State Park and took the CCC road to Sunset Ridge to the summit. Great views from the top. Coming down is a little rough on the knees but expected. Being the tallest mountain in the state, I also expected to see a sign marking the elevation at the summit. There wasn't.

The trail is hard but worth it we hiked up Eagle Cut Trail to Laura Cowles Trail and then to the summit and came back down Sunset Ridge Trail

Amazing!!! Loved this trail and would love to do it again. Unfortunately it was cloudy the day we did this trail but still gorgeous views.

The trail is steep but very rewarding. About halfway up the sunset ridge trail goes above the tree line, and the views are incredible. The long trail from the nose to the chin is very crowded from people walking from the access road to the summit.

Hard trail, but an unbelievable view. Took long trail both in and out so no loop but still about 5 hours after taking in the view for a bit. A must do for anyone in the area but plan for a whole day for sure!
