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.

View is great. Did this hike with our 3 kids ages 5, 7, and 9. they had a great time.

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!

Awesome payoff at the top, the views were amazing. I did Rattlesnake both up and back. I think the mileage is off however, they have rerouted the trail and added several switchbacks, the signs say is 1.5 miles from the falls, it was closer to 2 miles from the falls to the Vista points on the cliffs-so worth it however!!

great trail for bringing my dog. gorgeous views at the top. went on a hot day so when we got back we went over to Danbury Park for a swim. will definitely go again!

Great run/power hike. Challenging in spots. I did read about people being scare of heights should not. On the Monroe trail that shouldn’t be the case. I didn’t experience the other trails.

Great trail- only my second hike and it wasn’t too bad difficulty-wise. Definitely more scrambly near the summit but well worth it and quite fun! Was a bit wet but not too buggy. Unfortunately fog blocked our views but I’ll definitely be back for more!

The trail is very wet right now, I recommend hiking Hunger first and going down over white rock!

Great views and amazing trails!

this was my favorite hike all year. the top reminded me of the Himalayas a little bit.

Great hike...trail was nice and dry! Couldn't imagine doing this when it's wet!
Parked at Pico, hiked up to the top, then took this trail back to Trailhead at Inn at Long Trail...walked back to Pico...7.3 miles.
Hiked with my ski poles, highly recommended!

Awesome trail with amazing views at the top. Steep trail but well worth it. We were the only hikers at the summit

This trail has areas that are too steep to be called easy for someone with exercised induced asthma. Had to abandon our attempt. Review is for label, not for the area.

Fun and challenging trail. Great views to reward some scrambling. Good distance, won’t take you all day!

Just pure magic.

My gps clocked it at 2 miles each way. Good little hike, lots of off leash dogs. Took about 2 hours with my pup.

Trail was in great shape and the view was fabulous. A real treat for an after-work hike.

Great hike with our dog on 9/2/18. The views from the top were spectacular. Took us about 2.5 hours.

The best trail I have hiked in vermont! The trail on the way up is majestic - just incredible. There are a few steep and rocky areas, but the view at the top is incredible. There is room on the top to enjoy lunch and view the incredible scenery. I highly suggest this trail for the adventurous! It is somewhat difficult and steep in areas, so good shoes are a must.

Incredible hike with great views but it comes with some work. I highly recommend the popular loop that combines Dean's Trail, the Long Trail and the Monroe Trail. The crowds were out for Labor Day weekend but certainly not overcrowded. The Long Trail isn't for those who aren't able to climb boulders combined with narrow trails. For a smoother climb, take the Monroe Trail both out and back.

No breaks in the ascending, very rocky. The view at the top is worth the efforts. Loved it!

The view, as they say, is definitely worth the climb.

Quick Intensive hike,

This is not for the faint of heart or couch potato. The views at the summit are worth it. With kids under 10 I suggest bringing many snacks and taking your time.

This is a nice hike, definitely got my heart-rate up and a good sweat. The Monroe trail ascends through forest, sometimes with a decent pitch but often leveling off to allow you to catch your breath. It is consistently rocky requiring constant vigilance - and the rock can be slippery even if not wet. We were surprised to find a fair bit of water in the trail on the mid to upper part even after a dry spell. You only get views during the final ascent to the summit up the steep rocky section after the end of the Monroe. We are in our late 50’s/early 60’s in good physical shape but this was our first climb of the summer and it took us a solid 4.5 hour round trip with 15+ minute stops on the way up for lunch and at the summit. It was almost 2 full hours to get down surprisingly as we were cautious moving down the rocks. We were both tired and sore but felt good about summiting.

Great 2-3 hr hike depending on your ability. A few areas of steep climbing but worth the gorgeous view at the top of the valley. Start early to avoid the crowd and bring a snack or lunch for a break at the top.

loved this trail. 2.3 miles of easy going trail but it's all business once you hit long trail north. challenging and scenic. I would not do Deans' for the decent or when wet.

Nice in-town trail but very busy - even on a weekday.

Amazing hike. One of my favorite ever! This section was 11.1 miles by my GPS and I would rate it hard due to the number of extremely steep and slippery sections. Enjoyed multiple breathtaking 360 degree views and got a good upper body workout from the scrambles. Trail was well marked.

Amazing views. Quite challenging.
