5 stars with no explanation needed. The AT/Long trail is always well maintained and easy to follow. They were making snow at the summit as we got there for the ski resort, but dtill had a beautiful almost 360 degree view of the nearby Green and Taconic Mountains.

The first half mile will really test your legs. Very steep, challenging, yet exhilarating! After you reach the vista, you are treated to scenes out of a fantasy movie. Be sure to check out the panoramic view just behind the summit sign!

Trail hugs a stream with several waterfalls, culminating in a serene mountain pond.

Nice quick hike on a beautiful October day. Incredible foliage views from the overlook.

Great mid October hike. Views are definitely worth the hike up and I'm sure the cascade waterfall is spectacular during the Spring runoff.

Easy day hike. We went at a moderate pace and only took a few hours. The view at the top is ok. Part of the hike is actually walking up a ski trail. There is some rocks at the summit to sit on and eat or bring a small towel if you don't want to sit in the grass. Well marked trail, very easy to follow. Slow incline and some rocky spots. I hiked Killington earlier this summer, would recommend that much more than this. In my opinion, the view at the top of Bromley is disappointing compared to many others nearby! But still a decent, easy hike! Definitely appropriate for all skill levels. Saw lots of kids (age probably 5 and up) and even teeny dogs hiking!
