Always a good quick outing. Snow conditions were good. Just enough to cover the rocks

Beautiful view of Lake Groton! We've parked at the northern lot (off 232, just past New Discovery), and use the connecting trail for a total of just over 5 mi. Easy hike to the picnic lot at the base, with new, clean toilet.

This is a great hike. I would put this a at moderate hike only because it’s very rocky. The view at the top is amazing. This hike can also be very short or long depending on where you start but either way worth it.

Started at the north parking lot and connected onto the owls head trail from there. Ended up making the hike a 5.2 mile round trip. Was easy until the last portion that started at the picnic parking. It’s a bit scramble-y trying to figure out which rocks to climb on but the view is fantastic!

Easy trail with a curious dog on leash.

Great trail for kids! We did it with a 2.5 year old on foot in May without any worries. The black flies (biting gnats) were pretty intense at times especially when we stopped, but probably would have been easily avoided with decent bug spray. Otherwise, it's a very clearly marked trail with a fabulous view for a picnic at the summit.

Wonderful stroll through the woods, lots of spring flowers coming in (perfect for practicing those identification skills! See if you can spot the trilliums and adderstongues!). One thing to note is that we had trouble finding parking near the trailhead, which starts right behind the maintenance shop. On our way out we spotted the northern parking lot on 232 just past the turn off for the maintenance shop and before discovery park exit. You should be able to walk from this lot, albeit it’ll be on the road. Just know that the trail really is there and well marked once you find where it starts!

SS this several times winter of 18-19. Most of the time took unplowed road to parking area, then accented to top. Came out once down OH trail to maintenance shop. Snow wet & deep that day. Decided new SS’s were due. Wore out 45 yr. old ones. Took several friends up.

The view at the top is what gives this trail a 4 star. Otherwise a bit more like a stroll through the woods

Beautiful easy hike today with my 4 year old and 8 year old. The climb to the top was the only challenging part of this hike, but was relatively short and the views at the top were amazing.

This trail is very easy as you can drive most of the way durring the summer time. This trail would be excellent for young kids ( perhaps 4 and up) Leo

Quick to the summit if you drive up the top of the road. Steep but stair like boulders lead the way. Worth the short hike if you find yourself near. Would like to visit fall and winter

Did this yesterday with my mother and her dog and my new puppy. Great hike, super easy for my puppy to keep up and easy enough I went barefoot. Definitely need to remember bug spray next time though! Mostly under tree coverage so we didn't burn, which is always nice.

Views at the top are fantastic! Mostly flat; climb up doesn't begin until last 1/4 mile. Good for dogs too.

7/11/17 I took my 3 year old out today, she had a blast. Bugs were a little on the hungry side so you may want to bring a little bug repentant. Always a fun hike!

We hiked Owl's Head on Jan 27 2017. It was beautiful following a recent snowstorm. It was very cold when we reached the top and exposed to the wind. We took pictures quickly and returned to tree cover.

Hiked this a couple weeks ago with my mother. Foliage was at peak and absolutely beautiful! The view was literally breathtaking.

Parked at the north parking area and hiked the multi-use trails through the forest to link up with the Owl's Head trail south of New Discovery campground. This made an otherwise very short hike into an enjoyable walk through the woods ending in a very gentle climb to Owl's Head. The summit is nicely developed with a picturesque stone stair. Encountered several remarkably large toads in the forest as well as a snowshoe hair near the top of the mountain. Some yellow and white birches noticeably older than the surrounding trees punctuate the otherwise uninterrupted walk through the forest.
