Mosquitos are bad on some stretches. Nice little hike, first five mile hike for my kiddos, 8, 7 and 2 (carried most of the way). View is pretty incredible, nice little overlook before the tower (marked orange) with a great view of Pawtuckaway Lake.

Boulder trail is great for kids. Nice easy walk and great views. Little ones didn't have the energy to make it to the tower. Will try again at a later date. Bring deep woods bug spray!!! We were good with that, others without we're not so happy

Beautiful hike! Just long enough and challenging enough but not too hard. Trails were well marked. Summit isn't amazing but the view from the tower is pretty good. Bugs were TERRIBLE!!! (Early May) Dogs loved it, but be careful on the rock ledges near the summit if you have a clumsy crazy dog. Mine fell off a ledge and scraped his chin. Lightly trafficked on a Tuesday afternoon, but I would imagine it gets pretty busy on the weekends. Would do this one again... With bug spray! :)

Excellent view from fire tower, well maintained trails. Heavily trafficked is my only complaint, however it's understandable given the gorgeous views and excellent hiking.
