This hike is very popular, and for good reason. The Hickey Trail leads to the summit at a moderately steep grade. The Squaw Peak Trail then traverses the ridge, where there are great views of the Berkshires. Descend via the Indian Monument Trail, which is longer and more gradual than the Hickey Trail. My only criticisms are that despite its popularity, there are no restrooms at the bottom, and there are some large cliffs at the top.

Not too hard.

Nice hike, kinda crowded.

Great workout. beautiful views.

Fun easy walking trails. Bring waterproof boots if you go anywhere up a week after a rainstorm

March 4th 2018: This was a beautiful trail, an easy 5 miles. Some elevation at times. Beautiful views of the water. Currently the boardwalk into the water is damaged from the recent storm, and in many areas of the trail there are newly fallen trees. On the last mile of the trail around the pond the entrance is blocked by a giant cluster of fallen trees. I chose to walk on the main road and into the nearby neighborhood to gain access back to rest of the trail. I suspect as the warmest weather approaches the town will make the necessary upkeep from the off season. Highly recommend and would return to despite the current damage.

Trail was in great shape with the exception of a few fresh fallen trees. Connected with the Tully Loop and took that for a while

I did this hike with my ten year old son. He is starting to enjoy hiking and so this was a perfect one for him. We took the Hickey trail which was a bit steep, made a few stops for him to catch his breath. Along this path, you will come to a nice small waterfall and stream. Right before hitting the summit, there was a cool little ledge with a nice view. Once you reach the peak, there is a 360 view. My son loved it. We then followed the Squawk peak train, into the Indian Monument trail back. This trail was pretty flat, that followed the along the main road. The entire hike took two hours, maybe slightly more. Nice... would recommend.

Awesome hike! Beautiful trails and 300 degree view from the top..my 5 year old with a lil motivation and carrying up a few yards here and there was able to get to the summit..will def be hiking here again

Always a nice hike although today it was quite muddy. But who can complain about a 70 degree day in February. A little ice but it and the mud was fairly easy to get around.

The view was worth the hike

Easy, straight trail. A little boring, but still a decent gravel trail.

Great walk on this beautiful day!

Rocky trail with several scenic overlooks. Viewing platform at the top. Recommend good footwear. Avoid when rocks are wet especially links like the Bicentennial trail. Treasure this place so close to home.

Alot of history within these woods. from the great fire at the original Monastery itself, and the Nine Mens Misery memorial site dating back to King Phillips war.

loved it. Bet it's beautiful in the summer.

I started out early in the morning. It was a long gentle climb. I was alone at the summit, amazing views, the clouds were below me! Total serenity and peace! I could see all the way to the Catskills! I recommend this hike

Very nice winter hike. I altered the route and was glad I did. Instead of coming back on Park Loop Road, I took the Whistling Cave Trail. Besides being able to see the Whistling Cave, this trail was much less traveled and has a more rustic vibe. There are a few small brooks you have to cross when the water is higher . There are some beautiful rock formations there too! PS wear some micro spiked if going in the winter. There are some icy areas.

Nice little hike and amazing reward when reaching the summit. Wear spikes and this is an easier climb in the ice than it is in summer when wet and slippery .

This is a very short hike, but the falls are absolutely amazing! The view from the top of the waterfall is breathtaking.

I hiked this route yesterday morning starting at 7:30 am. The sun rising, and not another soul in the woods. The snow gives the forest a whole new look. I loved the trail!. The minimal snow depth made micro spikes a serious challenge when on a slope, and they made rock contact. I had several close calls. I can't wait for Spring so I can bring my wife!

Not a fan of all the “extras” they have set up all the time, ie halloween/Christmas decorations.

Easily marked and lots of paths

If your in western Massachusetts or eastern N.Y. traveling on 87, this is worth a stop. Short hike down to some dramatic falls . Don’t forget your camera!

Beautiful waterfalls!!! Stunning views from the Ridgeline!!!

Short and simple, great place to unwind after work, or a perfect picnic spot. Bring bugspray, where there's water there's bugs!

It’s important to note that we didn’t do the park trail loop, but rather made our way up to the top of Diamond Hill via the trail on the other side of Diamond Hill Road. It was about 1.5 miles to get from the parking lot to the top and back. There was about 4 inches of new snow on the ground. It was beautiful and a lot of fun. We started out by going straight up the hill via the old ski run and then made our way to the hilltop using the trails. We had our kids with us, one of whom is 6 yrs old, and they all did just fine. We’ll return in the spring to check it out sans snow, too! Definitely our favorite hike in Rhode Island, so far.

A good loop and challenging although the trails were very icy so I wasn’t able to make it all the way around and had to turn back. Look forward to going again in the spring.

Great walk! If anyone finds a Fitbit along the trail please let Me know here!!!!
