This has to have one the best 360 degree views of any hike. Mt Mansfield is staggering and beautiful. Great hike along the ridge line. The hike up is not bad and the hike down is a total rock scramble. Depends on whether your knees like that or not. This is one of those great day hikes that I am glad I did, but I would not do again , because of the rock scramble on the way down. Did Half way house up and Somerset up.

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
