Great trail, but the leaves made the rocks pretty slippery!

Green Falls Pond is a great loop to do with kids and dogs. Just a heads up, the gate leading down was locked 1/6/2018. Not sure if this is because of the logging work they are doing or if its closed for the winter. Add 3 miles (1.5 in and 1.5 out) to hike in and out from the gate: https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/recording-jan-06-04-24-pm--7. The pit toilet was still open at the swimming area, so the gate is probably closed until the logging work along the road is done.

Nice views even in a winter day. A couple spots are a bit rocky but that's the fun.
Probably it's easier to start going south / left from the trailhead and do the loop.

This is a great hike. Lots of others hiking and enjoying the scenery from the top. A few strenuous sections, but overall a pretty consistent challenge.

Did this trail in peak fall foliage season and loved it, though no matter how you dice it there will be lots of others with you and I prefer a more solitary hike. Still beautiful views on top !

after moving to this side of the connecticut river from Manchester, I was looking for a local hike comparable to case mountain. what a gem this place is. 10 minute drive from where I live and more than enough of a challenge to make it an experience worth having every time. love this mountain.

One of the best in Rhode Island. Can be challenging at times but amazing view of Providence at the summit!

Nice workout, took about 2.5 hrs on the blue trail. Waterfalls are scenic and the 2nd half is more challenging than the first. Definitely need to pay attention to the markers I can see why some get lost. I’ll definitely be back.

My favorite hike in western ma. Awesome view

beautiful views year round

Many reviews had stated that the trails were poorly marked however I am assuming they were recently repainted because all of the trails we hiked were clearly marked.

My humans took me to do this trail today. The first half of this trail was absolutely beautiful and well marked with white trailblazes. At the peak there are four man-made rock chairs which provide for a wonderful photo opportunity. Once you cross over 165 and approach what would be about the 4 mile mark you intersect with the North South Trail. These trails are marked with blue blazes. The white blazes end and there is no information to provide as to which way one should go to continue on the Mount Tom trail. We followed The blue markers heading south on the north-south trail.. Once you come out to a dirt road there is zero markings left for one to follow unless if you stay on the road (blue markers to left). According to the AllTrails map this is the wrong direction. From this point on regardless of which way you travel there are no markings anywhere. Hence, you really have no idea where you’re going other than if you’re all trails guide is telling you you are on the right path. I would not recommend this hike to anyone without having an AllTrails map. Definitely going to communicate with the Arcadia management team and inform them that the Lack of appropriate markings and information is out right dangerous for novice hikers. Other than that we had an absolutely beautiful hike. Wear shoes that are appropriate for wet muddy conditions.

Fun trail great to do with family and friends. Can’t beat the view.

This is my favorite mountain. I grew up nearby and any chance I get when I visit New Hampshire I trek the White Dot trail. I have a cousin who has hiked Monadnock thousands of consecutive days setting a record. The views are incredible in the summer, fall, and winter. White Dot is difficult. 800 to 3100 feet in one mile. Be somewhat fit, bring water, dress properly, and use caution on the granite. It can be hazardous to your well being. On clear days the Boston skyline can be seen, Canada and Vermont are visible and many lakes, ponds and church stepals are also visible. My favorite butt kicker trail.

Did this in early March with plenty of snow and ice on the northern slopes. Stunning views of the basalt outcroppings and Easthampton beyond. Lots of history for those interested. The ghost of a ski mountain, a plane crash, and a botched horse cremation are just the beginning! Easy hike for the whole family, a waterbottle each. Steep at each end but mostly flat up along the ridge.

I began the trail at dawn and did not see a soul until near completion of the loop. Some areas of the track are boggy or under water/ice but generally the trail is in good condition and well maintained, and the hike is still thoroughly enjoyable even this late in the year.

This trail was really fun! Lots of good views, some good scrambling at times. Good amount of mud, plenty of rocks to walk across though.

Pros- easy trail to follow with plenty of trail blazes, waterfall was beautiful, falls were really roaring with recent snow and a good portion of it was frozen which added to the beauty of it (falls is located on the blue/yellow trail right off the main blue trail), views of the lake were ok (views would probably be a lot better earlier in fall with more color)
cons- nothing much to see other than the waterfall, lots of trash around the lake which is very upsetting (I wish people would just clean up after themselves), trail was getting pretty busy as I was finishing up and parking lot was packed when I made it back

Beautiful hike on the beach today. Off season and just people out for a stroll.

Greats views

Gorgeous spot for sunsets, seashells, and photography

This is one of my favorite trails!it was a great loop. nice bridges not much water really good trail.but was very cold.so you should get lots of winter gear on when you go on this trail. but overall loved this trail!

Views are spectacular !! Trail is steep and there is some climbing you have to get through but very well worth it !!

This is a very unique hike which is totally different from any conventional hiking trails you’ll find in the sierras. Definitely worth doing at least once. Be careful; it’s very easy to slip and fall. Views are OK, not much to look at honestly.

Easy loop, clearly marked and well traveled

Climbed for first time. Not a traditional walking trail. Trail begins at white dot trail over rocks and tree roots and ascends quickly. Lots of granite on trail. In fact the “trail” turns to all grainte rock scrambling most of the way, sometimes crab walking on all fours becomes necessary. The summit is beautiful. Getting down equally rocky. Follow the trail markings, take your time, enjoy to views.

trail was extremely muddy, make sure to bring proper footwear. easy to get off trail (and off property!).

Great trail for hiking. Bring a map. Well defined trail but intersects with numerous other trails within Arcadia. Lots of options to make hike as long as you want. Easily can do loop just around Pond, about 1.5 miles total. Great views. Wear your orange during hunting season. Good parking lot.

Really great hike!! First mile is relatively simple, second mile is more climbing than hiking. We underestimated how cold/windy/icy the hike would be towards the summit. Wear good hiking shoes and many layers!
