To Do Map

Really great hike. Packed snow, trail broken in. Some icy spots, but did great with poles and crampons. Good training for New Hampshire!

Great hike. Don't let the fact that it's in eastern Mass fool you. The round trip hike is all up and down and is more strenuous than you think.

Short, easy hike, fairly popular, a conveniently located beautiful waterfall. Worth a stop.

Amazing walk overlooking the ocean. Stunning views of the ocean, boats and large homes. There are benches along the way and many beautiful photo opportunities. We followed the trail to Perkins Cove for some shopping and lunch before following it back to our car. The only con is that this is a very trafficked trail. We will definitely visit this trail again!

An okay hike. It’s a steady climb to the falls, it never gets steep. The trail descends a little over the last half of a mile. Although the lanslide and the waterfall are interesting, there aren’t many other attractions on the rest of the trail.

This was my first time hiking this trail, highly recommend giving it a try. Phone battery died when we reached the hut.

it's a good trail and close to my house. the trail is easily navigated and well marked

Most of the trail is on rock, so it’s more difficult than it might sound. You start getting views a little more than halfway up. It’s been hazy the last two times I’ve gone there (in August), so the vistas haven’t been as great as they can be. They are certainly phenomenal on a clear day. Beware of crowds (including weekdays) on one of the most climbed mountains in the world.

Did it in June tough haul, and in Feb to hermits hut, pack snow temp in 40’s easy like a paved highway and going down on soft pack edges easier!

Hard but rewarding. We didn’t even finish this hike just made it shorter by taking shorter way back, because in the beginning of November it was very cold and windy and because of that it was really hard to climb the rocks

greet hike red/blue trails are very well marked, the blue trail isn't marked as well but still easy enough to follow. I was pleasantly surprised how clean the peaks were we saw very little trash up there. We took a couple long breaks to enjoy the views and finished the loop in less than 4 hours.

Some pretty good climbing

Wonderful trail alongside the river....lots of rapids to enjoy! A must see! The downside....the long rough unpaved portion of road and a few run down dwellings on the way there. Wear hiking boots as lots of rocks to walk over and water to navigate around along the trail after heavy rains.

Fresh snow fall trail.. View at the top was beautiful..

Amazing day! A little tough for the kids, but they loved it.

First time there, won’t be my last!! Pretty hard at the onset. You will be using all 4s to get up the initial ascent. As others have said it gets easier but don’t let easiER get confused with easy. It wasn’t that hard for me but I see the entire loop being a challenge for many. It’s well worth the effort though so take your time and be careful. See you on the trails!!

Great scramble to start, then it eases up. I like doing this in the colder months. Less people.

A hike that is more like a climb. Great during the dry seasons, before the snow and ice hit. I don’t believe this trail would be possible to complete in rain, snow, or extreme wind.

Technical skills not required, but willingness to climb some scary-looking spots is key!

This was a short, easy walk, but the scenery is beautiful.

Love this hike❤

Wear metal crampons if hiking in the winter. This trail is extremely slick with ice. Wear warm clothes and proper hiking attire. Stay away from the edges as there is ice under the snow and it is very easy to slip. It’s a long way to the bottom.

Very nice hike, starts off gradual and gets increasingly steeper until a little scrambling near the end. Easily doable by nearly all ages, though, and you start getting views part way up. Great vistas on the summit of the Lakes Region, the White Mountains, and Mount Washington on a clear day. I have heard that it can get extremely crowded on weekends in the summer and fall, so plan your hike accordingly.

Pretty short hike with breathtaking views along the way. There are steep drops along the way with a fair amount of exposure. I did not think it was too scary, but people who are scared of heights might want to take it slow on this hike.

Choose when you go wisely, trails are often packed in warmer months.

I was really excited to try this hike, but unfortunately the reserve was closed. Yellow tape and the like. There were signs saying when they would reopen.

Will try again when I am back in that part of the state.

I hiked the Fox Run Trail and Breakhill Trail. There are many different trails. I suggest getting a map in the visitor's center first; it really gives a great overview of the park. Make sure your legs are ready to climb!
