I Hiked 11-7 it was raining in the early am. Then it turned beautiful. It was Diwali and my wife put Tilak on my far head to help guide my way. I went the easy way and followed the Burrows Trail. A little challenging at the very top. But this is very doable. Fantastic view. Saw like further then I could believe. ONE MAN GATHERS WHAT ANOTHER MAN SPILLS.

I went Monday 11-5 Lots of ice. Then when I got to the white rock trail it was a ton of snow Many of the markings are on the rocks So I could not see them but it seemed pretty obvious as to where you need to go. Very windy at the top but a fantastic view. ONE MAN GATHERS WHAT ANOTHER MAN SPILLS.

nice trail, it was cold and windy heading up the mountain.

Great hike with an amazing view. Very popular so the top may be hard to find privacy.

I did this today. 28 degrees rain Iicey snow sleet precipitation. Some really sketchy spots at the very top just before the fire tower. Lots of very thick ice. Danger Will Robinson The fire tower was covered in ice. Probably not a good move on my part and ; coming down was freeking treacherous Whole thing took about 2.25 hours. ONE MAN GATHERS WHAT ANOTHER MAN SPILLS.

Really nice day hike. The bottom half is fairly gradual through some beautiful forests, then the second half gets more rocky, steep and technical. Nothing seriously dangerous, but it makes for great views and some fun scrambling. I took the dog, and she made it up just fine without much help, but older dogs may have trouble.

One of my favorite hikes in VT! The first half is easy. The second half not so easy! Amazing views at the top!

Great hike. Started out around 1030 am and finished after 2pm, all at a casual pace with our dog. Coming down the Fire Tower Trail was a little dicey for the dog with all the mud, but we all enjoyed it!

Fantastic view for very little effort!

Great trail for a good work out. I would assume that is a great view of Burlington but the clouds were low when I went. Highly recommend.

Fun hike. Pretty steep in some spots. Great views on top. I continued East on the trail towards Middlesex and circled around to White Rock. This adds a couple miles on to the hike and you basically go down the East side and then back up. Well worth it in my opinion. Views to the East were spectacular. The climb back up to White Rock was challenging and fun. After reaching the top of White Rock you back track a bit and then take the trail heading back North to the Mount Hunger trail. Be prepared for water and mud. Have fun

Very great trail! Was muddy in some spots and definitely kicked my butt. The top was very rewarding with the fire tower and the cabin to hangout in while the rain passed. Definitely recommend it.

Absolutely loved this hike. I was surprised by how easy it was even though the trail was wet and muddy. The views are spectacular and wide ranging across both summits.

Hiked with my 6 and 10 year old.

There are some steep spots but it's manageable for smaller kids. Middle has better views and the peak is expansive with lots of ridges but is noticeably more difficult than North. North is much easier but the views are not as good. That being said I would do both of them again but preferred Middle.

Very rewarding hike! Challenging going up but not too bad going down. The view at the top is worth it (even with the fog!) Took us 3 hours 45 minutes total. The waterfall is about 1/4 of the way into the hike. The top of the mountain is very spacious- tons of room to spread out and eat/rest.

This hike provided some amazing views at the Fire Tower-panoramic views that were some of the best I’ve seen. My husband and I did this hike on a Saturday and saw lots of people so I would recommend going during the week. There were several parts where we had to let people go up or down-including small children and adults with infants. It is steep going up but not overly so and only a few tricky parts. I recommend going up Fire Tower trail and down Ridgeline as others have stated-longer that way but not as tricky. But the view on The Fire Tower is amazing and there are several other nice viewing spots.

Really excellent hike overall with majestic views and challenging sections, mainly the first 1.5 miles up. Trail is well maintained and moderately trafficked. Would absolutely recommend!!

Pretty good workout even though it’s fairly short. We only had a few hours so chose this and it was worth it! Went up to North Peak only. Took a total of about 2 hours to go up and back. Beautiful fall views at the top with the multi-colored trees. Wish we had more time to check out Middle Peak. But read the review about seeing the marker on the rock. If you head to the right of the boulder and down the path, it leads to a huge open area atop boulders. Very nice view!

Slow ascent to begin, then gets very steep! Very rocky at the top, including some light “rock climbing”. We took our 3 dogs up to the summit; however, it may be somewhat difficult for some dogs. There is a beautiful waterfall about halfway up that the pups can swim in and you have to cross to get to the other side. The view at the top was incredible! Very fun hike!

great hike!
I would say moderate and not hard.
Took us 5 hours in total from the parking lot and back include stops...
Amazing view, wet and a bit slippery forest and impressive pass from the forest to the Rocky summit.
could be better marked tho

9/23/18 Today was just a nice partly cloudy day for us too hike. It was in the 60's. We began the hike at 10:50am.Started on the monroe trail which is slightly steep. Then took Deans trail which was very nice and tranquil, was able to keep a steady pace. Make sure when you see an big open field on the right too go over and look and see the camel's hump from a distance. Spectacular view, an artist and photographers dream!! Then on to long trail where it gradually increases in altitude and also more obstacles to face with roots, rocks, boulders to scale with bare hands and on knees. Some spots slippery and wet on rocks and gravel. Then at the summit was unbelievably great feeling off happiness of this sight. We saw lake Champlain and 3 other mt peaks. The summit had a very neat alpine tundra biome as well.
An excellent hiking experience. Total hours for us was 5hrs 44 min. with 31,608 steps on pedometer. This was our first hike at 4,083ft. Be sure to bring warm clothing or extra shoes just in case. The summit can be windy and cold if it's not in summer season.

The hike was long but well worth it....

This hike was incredible. Thought it was easy-moderate compared to some other comparable hikes I’ve been on. Parking was great. The trail was well maintained and well marked. Mostly roots and ground rather rock. This would be a doable winter trek with spikes or yax. The views were stunning at the top. We hiked this on a perfect September day. The sky was clear and we could see the top of Mount Washington clearer than I’ve ever seen before. I could have stayed up the top of this mountain all day. The running brook at the bottom was a bonus.

always a favorite. firetower trail up, Ridgeline down. pretty easy with a ton of switchbacks and not too steep. views are amazing for the work. I've done this trail a bunch and it's never crowded.

Enjoyed this hike. View are great at the top. Not much of a trail run due to boulders but a great workout. Took me 68 minutes both ways.

This is a challenging but rewarding hike. We took the Monroe Trail up and back. There are some rocky and slick spots, particularly after you’re about two miles in. The last .3 miles is very rocky and steep, but doable. It took us about 5 hours total. You cannot beat the 360 views at the top!

Steep in spots but the reward from the Middle trail is worth the work!
