Fun, quick up and down. Nice views.

Great hike. Started at West Lane entrance. Went left at fork and took Blue/Red trail to Blue trail. Nice scenes. Great peak. Took Blue up to Blue/Yellow and cut back across East to starting point. AllTrails said we hiked 4.3 miles and burned 1431 calories. NICE. Definitely got a great workout. Would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back and do full loop.

A really awesome trail with great views. It would certainly be a 5 star review if the trails were marked better. Very easy to get lost. I have The AllTrails Pro and it bailed us out a couple of times.

Great a trail! Just make sure you where proper shoes. Fairly easy trail to walk with proper footware. Trail markers can be a little confusing so pay attention, lots of little side trials.

Excellent hike. Great view from the peak.

Quite a picturesque hike with plenty of views, but difficult to follow the trail markers, and most of the maps along trail heads are missing.

Is there such a fee to walk $5 when it use to be free.
I'm not impressed what so ever.

I did this hike with a friend for the first time and really got an intense workout. Such beautiful views overlooking the reservoir. Some rocky and steep inclines and we ended up a bit lost until we used our handy dandy map offered with this app to guide us back. We hiked a good 3+ hours and felt invigorated.

for the casual hiker it's a bit harder but worth the workout.

Hiked this at 10am on a Wednesday. Not another person around. Beautiful views and easy trails. Very well marked. Chose trails that took me in a mile summit loop. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like in the fall!

Beautiful area and really nice trail. If you walk off the path a bit you can find some great and safe cliff jumping areas, very beautiful views too!

Good 1/1.5 hour trail. Little bit of elevation mixed in with half flat but rough terrain. About 1/5th you’re walking along the pond, though some views obstructed. Good amount of parking

This was my first Solo hike and first hike I have done in about 8 years, it was easy enough for me. The trail was clean and clearly marked. The markers were clear and easy to read as long as you knew what you were looking for (make sure to Google how trail markers work if you are new). The terrain was mostly easy, there were a few parts that you had to climb up or down some rocks but nothing strenuous. it is a bit rocky in some spots but I was fine in a pair of all terrain shoes.

Simply beautiful and so peaceful.

Awesome hike to the peak. Great for beginners to intermediate. Trails are marked and there is private property all around so stay on Trails!

I am a beginner hiker and was recommended this trail by a friend that does it often-he gave me great directions. I wanted to have a bit of a challenge without the anxiety, and this trail was perfect. As long as you have a plan going in and pay attention to the very well marked trail, you will have an awesome experience and feel very accomplished at the end. I took blue/red to blue/yellow to blue/ and picked blue/red back to the opening. Stopped to have lunch on the summit right after I picked up the blue trail. Was still done in about 3 hours.

Love it. Hike it often

A favorite nearby, a little longer, trail. So many beautiful views and stops along the ridge. Fun times.
We went Clockwise from Wigwam. A little confusing after the pan handle, I'm calling it the Bermuda triangle. Followed a steep rocky river bed up to Blue Orange back to parking. next time taking the cut through, short cut back.

Very nice :) My sister is not so experienced so it was tough for her to get through all the rocks, but the view was worth it and we took the orange/blue trail after the reservoir to shorten the hike. It was well-marked and the app helped a lot! Bring a lunch, lots of water, and good shoes! 4 hours, with the shortcut.

Loved this park!

Nice, quiet and beautiful hike, other than one steep small hill I would label this blue loop as an easy hike. Extremely light foot traffic, very well marked trails, a couple fisherman on banks of beautiful reservoir which the trail does include an on top of view of, will definitely do again but again would say easy not moderate.

Quite buggy today but a fairly easy hike through beautiful country! Went in through Parker Rd, little difficult finding white dot trail, had to back track down Soapstone Rd but was worth following through woods and off road. Will definitely go back and explore other trails through park and looking forward to see fire tower refurbished and reopened again.

The views and difficulty level were definitely worth it BUT the trails were not well marked and this made it very difficult. I would highly recommend turning your location on and using this app/the compass feature if you actually want to follow the red/blue trail all the way through. Hike took about 4.5 hours.

Perfect!

This is the best place to go!! Beautiful view if you're willing to go up the broken tower....still worth it. All time favorite spot

I LOVE THIS MOUNTAIN! It's quick and easy of you want it to be or longer if you choose the orange trail and mix some other trails in. The winding orange trail is good for trail running but gets very muddy in the spring and fall. I always meet the nicest people and cutest dogs at the top! There's also a cool notebook at the top for you to wrote about really anything you want. I highly reccomend this hike. Oh and the view is georgous!

I stuck to the blue and blue/red trails. This hike has it all. Some scrambling, streams, views and plenty of rocks. Will definitely be back!

The trail was awesome. The Red/blue trail led us to the blue trail ( Metacomet) and eventually to the summit which had a great view of the reservoir. However, once we came down from the summit, we never saw the Red/ blue trail and proceeded along the blue blazed trail onto Carey road. It was getting dark fast and we had to take the road 3 miles out of our way to get back to the Ragged Mt. Preserve parking area.

Options for short or longer walks. Gorgeous! You would never know it’s so close to the city. Went on a Tuesday afternoon , quiet. Can only imagine what it might be like on the weekend. Watch your footing for roots and mud but otherwise very gentle.

Great workout! The blue/red trail around the mountain is challenging even for an avid hiker but the view from the top is definitely worth it! The trail is well-marked most of the time but the marks are sometimes too far apart and it could be easy to get lost; this is true especially around the summit. It's quite rocky; so, make sure you have hiking boots/shoes on for stability. Rock climbing is also part of the menu with some additional dose of jumping over the streams, fallen trees, and steep, rocky downhills. Trekking pole is recommended.
