Felt like I was hiking back down forever. Great views though.

pros: great workout. dog friendly. blue trail up was very clearly marked. clean. pretty view.

cons: yellow trail down wasn't very clearly marked in some spots.

note: there are 2 areas where the yellow trail turns, instead of the usual double yellow mark there is a 90degree angle drawn on the rock that looks like an arrow, making people who are accustom to the "double marker means turn" indication of a trail turning, go in the direction of the "arrow" so DON'T go in the direction if the arrow because it means the trail turns 90degrees. haha. we found our way back to the proper trail easily. it look like several groups have done this as the "off trail" is warn fairly well making it look like you're going the right way. :)

great hike , Met some really people
shelter and cabin worth the visit

Not my favorite hike. It was mostly wooded and more of a nature walk than a hike (nice but not what I was expecting). The views at the peak were limited but pretty. Might hike again someday to check out the waterfall and explore a little more. I wouldn’t recommend this trail for running as the trail has lots of little rocks.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hike. I took the Barnes trail up. It had some pretty good rock scrambles during the first portion and it leveled out a bit as I approached the top. There were a few nice viewpoints on the way up and on the way down. I didn’t enjoy the descent as much. There were a lot of bugs and it was mostly wooded. Pay attention to the markers on the way down - many are faded and trees have fallen on the path in some spots. The last mile or so doubles as an ATV trail before reconnecting with the Barnes trail. I’d probably hike this mountain again but I’d go down the way I came up.

Seemed like we were hiking a big mountain trail, but only an hour out of Portland! Highly recommend

What a great trail! I have hiked Pleasant Mountain via the Ledges Trail before and almost did that one again today but at the last minute decided to try something new, and I'm so glad I did! the trail goes through lots of different zones - open forest, bare rock, grassy areas, more dense forest - so there's a lot of variety to keep the hike interesting. A few spots with nice views on the way up and gorgeous views of the Whites from the top.

We have hiked this mountain many times before but I had never done the full twin brook/yellow trail. It was beautiful. Pretty difficult for me this year as I am out of hiking shape! It took us about 4 hours in and out. When we neared the summit, we ran into a very large black BEAR!! This was yesterday, 6/8/18. It looked straight at us and was maybe 30ft away. We had our dog who was tired by th at point and just happened not to notice the bear. We turned and walk back the entire trail in a panic! Next time we will carry pepper spray just in case. It was really scary!!

Watch out for porcupine my dog got jacked up at the Vet

Great hike with our 3 boys. Well maintained trail. Wonderful views at top!

We really enjoyed the views! Could have been marked better . Some very steep areas . Hike down with a 9 year-old and a one year old on back pack.

GreTa trail. surprisingly not to busy. The views!!!

Really nice trail with amazing views along the ridge going towards the summit. Only downside was its proximity to the cars driving on the summit road... you could hear them much of the way up and at points the trail runs near the road. Did this as a sunrise hike because we got up too late to hike the south ridge. However, the views were still great, and we sat to watch the sunrise along the ridge to avoid the massive crowds on the summit.

This was definitely wasn’t an easy trail! I brought my 10, 6, and 5 year olds they did better then me! But it was beautiful!

Chose this route from the summit of Cadillac mountain, after taking the Gorge path to the top. Nice route that somewhat follows the summit road. We had parked near the Gorge path entrance from the park loop road, which was about 1/2 mile walk back to our vehicle on exiting this trail.

Our first time doing this trail with our German Shepard and Boston Terrier. Was a great hike, but definitely think your dogs need to be in good shape as our Greman Shepard wasn't. We weren't aware of the rock scrambles, so we had to lift our Shepard in a couple of spots. Great workout with great views! Would do again, just not with our out of shape dog...

Accurately rated as easy, though there are a few steep points where old pups or people with weak knees might struggle. Beautiful lookout points. The whole loop-de-loop that AllTrails lays out here took us just under two hours, including short stops to take in the views.

Finally got to hiking the mountain in my hometown-we went on a hot day so it was difficult with my asthma but if we’d done this hike on a fall day I’d rate it moderate. Trail starts out steep right away! But levels out as you go. We found a BUNCH of blueberries on the trail, bushes everywhere. Overall a fun hike and pretty views.

This is one of our favorites-not too far of a drive from Portland, and an easy to moderate level of difficulty. This was one of the first mountains we did, when we went back several months later and with a few more mountains under our belts, it was MUCH easier. Second time we did burnt meadow and stone mountain together, up and down and to both mountains took us about 3.5 hours. Beautiful views!!! Highly recommended.

Went up in early August. Good, fairly intense hike with well-marked trails. The day before was foggy so we decided to wait a day and it was a great decision. We’re all in pretty good shape (aging from 15 to 50) and it took an hour and fifteen minutes going up with stops for water breaks and pictures.

Wonderful trail with beautiful views. It’s moderate but definitely. strenuous if you aren’t in good shape. Took my dog along. Saw a few people along the way. From Denmark road parking area it’s about 3 miles to the top. There is access from the other side of mountain that is about a mile shorter. Took about 2 1/2 hrs to reach the summit and about 1 hr 40 mins to get down. Stopped a number of times for my dog who was really struggling with the heat, and for ourselves on the way up to catch our breath. We had plenty of water. On hot humid days you will need about 3 liters of water for a person plus a dog. Trail is steep from the start until reaching about 2/3 of the way up, then there is relief as you hike the ridge. Definitely worth repeating.

The hike gets steep right from the start but that just means that you get to the great views faster. I found the views along the ridge on the way up to be just as enjoyable as the view from the top, if not even more so. This was my first time hiking alone so I was nervous about getting lost but the trail is very well marked by either yellow diamonds or cairns.

Good hike, some really good views along the way. The trails are very poorly blazed and found myself having to refer to my GPS very often which was annoying. Italian Trail would be the easier route up if you plan on doing this as a loop. I went up Italian Trail and took Shaw mountain trail down. Overall it was 7.3 miles and a very good workout.

Great hike! Took about an hour and a half to get to the summit. I would say this is a moderate hike, like others have mentioned it starts right off steep right away and then levels off for a little before the last steep trek to the summit. Had great look out points throughout the whole trip. Would recommend for a quick day hike in a beautiful area!

Really enjoyed the variety to this hike. We went to the right to start, so up the front ledges. Reading the reviews i was a little nervous about the scramble because i'm not the most confident climber. But i found the ledges fun to climb and my husband only had to help me once. The first half of the trail up was very well marked, looked like someone had recently gone through it and redone it. Going down was a bit tougher (I think their spray paint ran out) but you just had to keep a sharper eye out. Going up the ledges allowed a steady pace with natural breaks up the hill. It looks like if you went up the other way it would just be a straight trek uphill. Would do the hike again.

Enjoyable hike but not much variety to it or views. Did find a bunch of different kinds of mushroom on the path and saw the occasional chipmunk and toads.

As others noted, the views along the ridge are spectacular. Nothing complicated or advanced here, so the moderate rating is spot on. The trail does require stamina to make it up, but there are plenty of good rest stops along the way if you need them. The top of the mountain has no shade, so planning a early start would avoid the summer heat. It will also give you a chance at a parking spot near the trail head. This trail is a easy descent and makes a nice loop with the gorge trail.

I would rate this trail moderate-hard. The climb is quite steep on many sections on the way up, but totally worth it! Amazing views from every direction! The temperature dropped considerably at the top.

Really great trail that is challenging without being brutally hard. If you’re going in the summer, go early and bring a ton of water - it gets insanely hot and basically no coverage.

love this app. it keeps you on the trails.
