Great hike with unbeatable 360 degree views of Vermont, New York, New Hampshire, and Canada. Very windy above tree line. I’m afraid of heights and I was fine with driving up the toll road and then hiking to the Chin. There were only two times when I felt like I needed to put my hands on the rocks to steady myself next to what seemed a bit dicey, and I only swore during one of those times. I was fully expecting to wimp out before the Chin, based on other reviews, but I was fine.

Spectacular views without going all the way to the chin. Hike gets more challenging as you approach the lip and for those with aging knees hiking sticks would be welcomed (if not essential). The CT grandchildren (9 and 10) were a bit fearful of the climbing required at the end, so we all turned back but had wonderful views and a great overall experience. Not a strenuous climb, but agility and balance are certainly required. It has rained the day before we were there, so slippery, as well. Hiking boots, layers of clothes, and hiking sticks (as there are no railings) are reccommended.

Great hike that offers spectacular views towards East and West from the ridgeline. Weather started cloudy but cleared up over the course of the hike. Our 5- and 3-yr old kids hiked the entire length with some hand-holding.

Great trail hellbrook lives up to it’s name.

It was very foggy when I took this hike, but it's a beautiful hike even without any views. The arctic-alpine environment is so lovely, it's fascinating to be able to see this fragile and unique ecosystem up close with relatively little effort!

Great strenuous hike. We took cliff trail to canyon trail back to Cliff trail for an awesome loop. No bugs and very few people.

Nice day, easy hike to the chin, windy and wet rocks made the trip to the Adam’s apple “interesting “. BYW, the road doesn’t open until 9:30.

Awesome adventure. Well worth climbing all the way to the peak of Mt Mansfield at The Chin if you can make it. But even if not, go as far as you can and you will be rewarded with splendid views. Did this with my 9yr old and 73yr old father in law (he is very fit!)

Great trail, extremely windy, but beautiful view throughout! Not too difficult, but it could be quite slippery if wet I think.

An exceptional hike. Proper shoes are a must (the girl at the front gate gave plenty of warning. Shoes with ankle support as you are seriously on some hard rocks... the volunteers from Green Mountain Hiking Club were exceptional. We met Miles and he had lots of info for us... we are old (61 yrs) and went very slow but we will do it again just start a little earlier in the day!!

Outstanding hike with great views. Maple Ridge Trail was great but probably not for everyone. Walked the ridge from the Forehead to the Adam’s Apple. Ridge is really easy except for the span between the Chin and Adam’s Apple. That section is extremely steep. Probably best left for the stronger hikers.

Took the family up the toll road hoping to see some spectacular views without injuring ourselves (we are rookies). Parked at the top of the toll road and took the Long Trail north to see how far we could make it. Luckily we had bought some good hiking shoes because tennis shoes weren’t going to cut it. Unluckily, we did not dress warmly enough in just jeans and pullovers. One more layer would’ve done the trick. The climb was not too bad at all, even for my wife who was recovering from an ankle sprain. She made it about half way and me and the kids kept going while she stayed to meditate and chat with the many hikers we saw. Me (50) and my son (18) and daughter (16) made it, (I think) to the Lower Lip. The Chin was right there but we were gassed and cold and hungry and going the rest of the way would’ve meant another 30 minutes minimum at the rate we were going. Definitely worth the effort to see some amazing views of the whole area including Lake Champlain. For those just looking for great views, the walk to the first viewing spot is very easy to get to. The terrain is mostly flat and they have wooden planks to help you. Definitely worth the price of admission ($54 for the toll road) If you go beyond that to get to the Chin, it gets progressively harder but nothing that can’t be handled by rookies with good shoes and time. We even saw two families up there with babies strapped to their backs. Lots of dogs too. Can’t wait to try again.

It was a rainy day and there were less than 10 people we encountered during the hike, but it was very special. It was very windy near the chin and the rain drops hit hard on the faces, but what an experience!

We took gondolas and then hiked the rest of the trail to the Chin. This part of the trail is challenging and very rocky, but really fun as well! Not too long, 0.6 miles or so. But be careful when descending, rocks are veeery slippery! Unfortunately we did not have a good view on the top as the summit was covered with clouds, but it was still a very nice walk with beautiful nature and plants around, it was a little crowded though because it was Labor Day weekend. Have fun and be careful! Remember to have proper hiking boots, it’s very important on this trail. Also remember that the last gondola from the top leaves at 4pm, so plan accordingly, otherwise you’ll have to go down on foot.

Breathtaking panoramic views all the way up the Toll Road! We were lucky & caught a beautiful, clear, light wind day. Be sure to wear luggy hiking boots or shoes & plenty of water. Sunscreen is a good idea on a sunny day (fully exposed). Some rocky challenges but my 12 & 9 year old daughters did great (after several water breaks). A couple more technical sections towards the summit but manageable if taken slow & well worth the climb. We’ll be sure to make a return trip next summer!
