Nice little hike, lots of ice so micro spikes are definitely necessary. There wasn’t too much of a view as everything was socked in by fog, but still a beautiful day to be outside and see all the ice encrusted trees. The sun came out just as I was summiting!

Great trail, should probably be moderate as it is all uphill and very steep at the top, but the views of Silver Lake and Taylor Pond are worth it. Good parking at the trailhead and much less crowded than the other popular trails.

This hike was very fun and enjoyable. Personally i think this rating should be changed to a moderate it is straight up for most of the way. I also don’t think that the distance is correct. But other than all of that this hike had amazing views and i would definitely do it again!

Did this hike with my wife and chihuahua. The chihuahua stayed in a carrying pack cause it was too steep for him most times. There is a small parking area at the head of the trail so you don’t have to worry about parking on the road. The hike took us 50 minutes to the summit. That includes plenty of breath catching breaks. Also it started to rain steady at times but there was enough tree cover during the hike that we hardly noticed except at the summit where the trees are thinner. We only saw two other groups the whole hike. We enjoyed it and recommend it.

Have been hiking this all my life. A short but steep hike especially towards the top. Amazing view, can see Taylor Pond, Silver Lake and Union Falls Lake and the top Of Whiteface off in the distance. Another short hike just down the road is the Silver Lake Bog Walk which leads to the Bluffs at the head of Silver Lake. One can easily do both!

Great trail, perfect for a short hike with a nice pay off. I would rate this as moderate, I saw lot of out of shape hikers have a difficult time near the top.

Great short hike while still getting plenty of exercise due to its steepness. Less busy than most and beautiful views at top!

Great hike and great views! Easy to find trailhead, well marked and easy to follow. A bit steep, but not too bad. Just go at your own pace.

Pas long à faire, simple le matin pour débuter la journée. Les enfants aimerons! Il y a des bleuets sauvages comestibles sur la montagne, petite collation parfaite :)

One of my quick go-to hikes- especially when staying at Taylor Pond Campground. Blue berries are prolific ! Did this as a sunset hike . Doable for kids I would say.

Short and a bit steep but the views are amazing. We enjoyed sampling the blueberries near the top. This is great for a quick afternoon hike before or after a dip in a lake.

Gorgeous view, lots of blueberries definitely wouldn’t consider it easy. The climb is quite steep, it took just over 30 mis to get up. We didn’t go to the end of the trail however because it looked sketchy and was descending.

I hiked with my 11 year old son, his 10 year old friend and my 3 year old daughter...I backpacked her the second half and then the way down. Kids of all ages can do it but my daughter doesnt listen well and there were some places she would have made me nervous on...but that's almost any mtn trail we go on lol... the summit fools you....you keep thinking you hit it but then keep pushing further for another great view. It took us 34 minutes to get down and if I were by myself it would have taken no time at all...there are some rock faces in a few spots to climb but have other options around them usually as well.... good hike...great intronfor.kids to see how they will do with longer or more intense trails...oh and yes it does get steep very quickly but very manageable...

I would definitely recommend this trail but there is no way it should be rated easy just because it may be shy of 2 miles. A 900+ ft gain over 1 mile is a challenging jaunt. Have your hiking poles & plenty of water. Enjoyed a sit on the rocks at the top to take in the view.

Great for a short hike with a baby backpack. Great views, with a steep and rocky accent.

I would definitely say the first few minutes are challenging. Steady climb all the way up! I'm in shape and this had me huffing. Made it to the summit in 25 minutes so fairly quick pace. Gorgeous views!!!

Best view in the ADKs, easy to moderate lush and peaceful hike full of rare flowers and pure heavanly bliss hiking trails from pine needle soft to rock crawling on the edge of a cliff. *Anyone heading into the woods knows to make their own bug juice, or to bring what works. Feel free to Google diy mosquito repellant. Reading the last two comments from people complaining about bugs aught to stay out of the woods. It's par for the course folks, particularly during a heavy rainy season...come prepared so bugs don't sour a beautiful trek. Shaking head, people glued to their phones all day then blunder into the woods haphazardly to then complain about bugs like a day one cub scout or browny...lol. Truly if you don't love eveything in the woods stay home or don't comment. No one wants to hear anyone whine about their soured experience in the prestine, picture-postcard perfect wilderness because they basically just went in the woods. Much Love!
