Pretty trail but right now it is still under 2-12" of slushy snow in spots. With the melting snow, the length of the trail is flooded so if you don't have waterproof boots, forget about it. Additionally, the younger trees along the trail are still bowed over with icy, compacted snow, closing off the trail in places and forcing you to detour. As the anow melts, yiu can see the amount of damage done to the forest by our 3 Nor'easters. Be prepared to climb over fallen trees, and trip over the multitude of fallen branches. The rapid and waterfalls are ronning fast and hard, so the sunshine and the sound of water certainly made the hike worthwhile.

Did a quick 2 miles...will be back again to do the loop...parts of the trail have downed trees from the storms we had this year.

One of the more strenuous trails I've hiked, with the gain being somewhere around 900 feet / mile. The trails coming off the AT - particularly the North Trail - are not the best marked, but when you find them you will be blown away by the views!

Took North and South scenic trails, which are more difficult and have a lot of sun exposure. The AT sections were easier and had coverage. Great loop. Wear sunscreen and a hat!

Beautiful views of Milford. Hike is short, but very steep for a short time. But the views at the top as so worth it.

Great hike!

It was tough to do and an awesome challenge. But take the “scenic route” that is an off shoot of it. It adds a little bit of distance but walks along the open side of the mountain.

As of February 23, 2018 the NPS has closed Cliff Trail to protect nesting Falcons. It is expected to reopen in July or August.

Took this trail today, beautiful day. Once up the initial incline there are some beautiful views. I read this trail as being 5 plus miles round trip. We were so intune with the beautiful weather and views that we didn’t realize right before the knob that we had gone 5 miles already. BE ADVISED the full loop is 10 plus miles. Well I got a full workout today. Great trail in the winter highly recommend.

Views in the winter are much better, especially with snow providing a contrasting backdrop.

I hiked this trail New Year's Day and again a week later. It's beautiful and totally doable covered in snow. I ended up taking the trail along the cliff on the way to Milford Knob and then taking the main trail back to the parking lot.

We did the Appalachian trail and Blue trail loop. Great day hike with views on blue trail

Great hike, though I'd call it an intermediate following the regular trail— only if one takes the south trail loop (as shown in map) does it become a difficult trail, with lots of seriously fun but occasionally treacherous rock scrambling. Great views at certain spots, there's a spring about one mile from the trailhead. Overall, a pretty decent day hike, even in late November.

Solid hike with my dog. Beautiful weather and some nice views. Just a few other hikers on the trail. Peaceful.

Great views and some rock scrambling along the ridge line. good times.

I didn't hike this entire thing, a friend of mine pulled off to a halfway point. I plan to hike it soon and the view at the top is absolutely stunning. A must do if you're in the area.

Great views, easy to walk.

Very scenic, easy hike. Take your camera, beautiful mini falls.

First 1/2 mile is steady uphill but well worth it! Lots of snakes today (6 that we laid eyes on) but the views were spectacular! Trails are exceptionally well maintained and marked. Huge thank you to those who recently weed whacked the trails!

Amazing views! Favorite hike.

A tough uphill for the first mile or so but the North Trail views were spectacular and so worth the climb. Definitely going back in a few weeks.

Amazing views

Beautiful pine forest, well marked (green) trail. Steep just before overlook. Nice view of Milford. I extended the trail and connected up with Cliff Trail (white) for lovely cliff and lake overlooks.

Good hike...We turned this trail into a loop trail by starting with Woodpecker trail at the Nature Center, AT, then second entrance to the North Trail, came down to Charcoal trail and then Prairie Grass trail around back to Nature Center. Approx. 7 miles.

Good hike. Used five of the trails to make a 7 mile loop. Warning that the Charcoal trail is NOT well maintained. Had a great hike and the scenery was spot on. Great day!
