Enjoyed the trail especially the streams and view from the summit. Only about eight other folks on the trail. Steady incline with a fairly steep climb for the last 1/2 mile or so.

The views at the top are beautiful. The tree close to the top with the roots overtaking the rocks is a great part of the experience. Quick little hike that was easy even for my hike-loving old pup to finish!

Short but incredibly beautiful hike. The falls are amazing...an easy hike for all abilities. The Fall is definitely a great time to visit!

Nice trail up to the tower, typical of the area with lots of rocks and boulders on the trail. It is almost all uphill so be aware before starting. Great views from the top!

Started at about 930 and took us about 3 hours with a half hour at the top. Gorgeous views! The pond was a really cool spot too. Nice if you just want a shorter but challenging hike!

Nice quick easy trail with spectacular views.

Did the east trail up and down. Nice cool September day. Only a bit of mud (it rained the night before), but boots are recommended if rainy. Trail is not well marked, but is easy to follow as it's well worn and wide.
Since this was after a frontal passage, the view from the fire tower was excellent!
A note on the parking...there were several cars parked on the road (the road with the houses) with a few spaces and shoulder parking, and the walk/driveway into the trail head is somewhat narrow, so we assumed that was the parking at the road. Nope, there was a whole lot at the end of the driveway (at the trail head) that was only half full. Everyone parked at the road could have fit!

Super fun, beautiful walk in the woods! Very easy and flat trail for our hike-loving eleven year old dog and three kids that were tagging along! It was well trafficked the day we went, but the magic of the beautiful lake and the loons calling made it feel like it was our own special place

Peaceful, easy trail. Amazing water & woodland viewing.

My seven year old has declared this her favorite mountain, perfect for the heart of an adventurer. She loved all the caves and crawl through rock piles. It was not the best marked trail, but we had a great time.

Nice and easy hike..... end result brings you to a beautiful, peaceful lake to sit and have a snack or lunch!

Perfectly lovely trail. Get there early for parking lots of people. Nice visit to the top. Went with a two year old German Shepherd and there was no problem at all. Fairly easy all the way.

This was our very first hike in the Adirondacks and we really enjoyed this trail. It starts off pretty easy which was a great warm up as it gets progressively more difficult and steep as you go! We really surprised ourselves and made it to the top. We only passed a few people along our hike and they were coming down on our way up. No one signed in after us and we ended up having the peak all to ourselves for the afternoon.

Decided to actually attempt our first mountain peak on the wife’s 29th birthday. The last mile or so got rather intense, but the pay off was definitely worth it.

Great little Adk lake! Lots of trails to follow to other lakes and mountains.

Beautiful views and easy to hike. Definitely worth it!

Fun hike with the family. Certainly a lot of exercise, constant uphill. Cool fire tower, pretty views at the summit. Felt great to have a rest and a snack at the top. But going back down was not fun, lol.

Great hike, great views. It was a little wet when we went. The black flies were insane,a couple shots of deet took care of that. Definitely recommend this hike

pleasant hike. the whole trail is an incline from head to the summit. think climbing stairs. i would not suggest doi g on a rainy day as there are large portions on granite slabs. great 360 views and a fire tower you can climb om the top.

Easy to moderate trail, heavily used with nice view at the top. DEC sign says it is 0.6 miles each way, All Trails 0.8 miles but I logged just under a mile each way with over 700 feet of elevation gain on my mapping app.

Such a fun time! We hiked this mountain with our 4 kids. 3 hours roundtrip. Be prepared to climb!

Nothing more to add to recent reviews. For less crowds try a weekday or early weekend morning. The new porta potty is fancy! This would be an ideal sunset hike.

Great place,easy hike for the little ones,we will return again soon. Definitely recommend this place.

Steady uphill trek right from the trailhead over bedrock, large rocks, and hard-pack dirt. Somewhat sparsely marked by red trail discs, but the trail is very clearly defined. We believe the “moderate” rating is accurate due to the sustained uphill grade. Walking poles/sticks will come in very useful for those with knee/back issues. Saw lots of kids and dogs on the trail during our descent.

Nice easy trails for the little ones. I would guess we seen a few hundred salamanders. Mosquitos were thirsty but manageable. A quick 10 minuet drive from the house.

Great hike. similar elevation gain to some high peaks, but the ground is pretty soft most of the hike, which makes it easier.
you can definitely bring a dog that is use to hiking on this trail with no issues.
