Nice trail with beautiful views at the top. It was crowded though. The summit area is not very large and there were so many people up there that it was difficult to find space to sit and enjoy the view.

Beautiful! A little bit shorter than I had hoped. Great view from below and above!

Was a challange for my crew but we made it to the top was so worth it!

Great trail with amazing views at the top. Kinda steep at points but doable if you’re in moderately health and shape. Plenty of kids and elderly were doing it

My 15 yr old son and I walked this approximately 10mi hike in 5.5 hrs with time to enjoy the views and rest stops along the way. It was a great hike, just challenging enough for us both. It had rained and the trail was muddy and slippery. There are a few streams to cross and a lot of scrambling on steep rocks near the top. The elevation gains were doable, slow and steady increase to the top. We lost the trail a few times in the second half too but our phone GPS worked up there and helped us out. There were very few people on the trail, and we accidentally disturbed a great horned owl. I highly recommend this hike.

Gorgeous hike. We did this in fall with the foliage so everything was doubly pretty. Highly recommend doing Clara Bow trail loop from the lodge. It is nice and quiet there.

We did this in mid-october in full foliage. Outstanding and highly recommend it. I could see moon in the daylight up top!

Great intermediate hike! My Garmin GPS unit said the parking lot elevation was 1615’ so total elevation gain was 2466’. Loved it.

It was awesome experience

This is trail is beautiful and really well maintained, though rocky and relatively steep. Though there is water close by and on a rainy day it could be slippery, on our dry July day it was just fine. We spent a night at Butler Lodge were able to link up with other trails for extended hiking. Butler Lodge holds ~14 people and apparently is never in threat of filling up. You don’t need to reserve ahead of time and it costs $5 per person. There is water that needs to be filtered and our dog was able to spent the night with us. Highly recommend this hike!

It is a beautiful and open view almost the whole way. It was challenging and at times a little scary for me because of the high and open view to the valley's below. So very worth it!

Nice waterfall . Easy to get to!

Hiked this trail again with friends. It’s a fun hike with several options to take side trails!!!

A classic!

I rated this as a decent outing because the falls are nice and refreshing. This is NOT a 2.9 mike hike. It is a little under a half mile to the falls.

did in march and didn't finish it because of some of group and running out of day light but was beautiful

All around great trail. Near the summit may be somewhat challenging for young children in that quite steep and very rocky

Did this trail with my family. I wasn’t sure they would be up for the full hike but they did it all with little to no crying and complaining and we had an amazing day! This is a challenging hike, especially towards the top, but my kids (4 and 7) loved scrambling up the rocks. Lovely trail and fabulous views from the top. We’ll definitely do it again.

I love this hike so much, a good medium in-between... great to do when you’re feeling like hiking but not necessarily feeling like climbing an entire mountain, yet the views up top are incredible. You can see all the way out to Champlain lake. This trail is also great towards the end of winter. TIP: if you want to get up to the views but don’t want to hike all that much, there’s an even shorter trail to get to the top. Coming from Stowe, before you reach the trailhead, there’s a road off to the left called Pinnacle road, drive all the way to the top and there’s a small parking lot. Cuts the hike in about half!

Beautiful views from the top. I'm an infrequent day hiker. I wouldn't call a 1500 ft climb in 1.5 miles "easy".

If you're just interested in the view, park at the Stowe Meadow trail head and save yourself 500 feet in elevation gain.

This was such a fun hike. Starts out easy and gets increasingly steeper. It took me less than 2 hours up and back with time to stop for photos. I will definitely return in the Fall.

NOT 2.9 miles. More like a 5 minute stroll from the parking lot and then BAM ... you’re in a pristine medieval forest that looks like a movie set. The falls are splendid, but make sure you enjoy them from above as well as below. From the top, the dangerous and gorgeous views of the slot canyon below are a must see. Who knew this was just off the highway? Now you know. Put it on your short list of things to see in the Stowe area.

You can start this hike from the Pinnacle Meadows parking area and cut off 1/2 mile and 500 feet. This means you can get to a faux summit with sensational views in under an hour. How cool is that?

Great waterfall and short hike. Water was crystal clear and the perfect temperature to cool down in July.

Beautiful hike through the woods (with some rocky scrambles) to an amazing view! Great workout.

This was a fun and sometimes difficult hike. The top 1/3 has many rock scrambles and is fairly steep. I will definitely go again!

Great little hike. We were checking it out for hiking with friends that don’t hike. This is an easy one with beautiful falls. We started out around 7 AM and had the trail to ourselves. Also went past the falls for another 3/4 of a mile just for the exercise. Nice trails with a couple steep spots that can get the heart rate up.

This was a very nice easy trail! Nice to find the lodge at the top and still had great views ! Definitely would do this one again!!!
