Well kept with all the traffic back and forth. Great scenery from the Green Mountain.

Good hike,but lots of rocks. Pretty falls, but probably a lot nicer after a good rain.

Great hike in my backyard. PLEASE DO NOT VENTURE OFF TRAIL! I’ve done way too many searches for lost hikers up here. Easy to follow trail markers

Not to steep, perfect for us! Best hike I have been on in my life!

Moderate hike with no summit view at the top. The Vista / overlook is the rock face as the other reviewer (mj) said at 42.9134, -73.1555. This is more than a mile before you get to the summit and is right at the point where you first see the white rocks all over the place. The trail at the summit connects to two other trials that keep going. We followed the ridge trial about .2 miles and didn't find any other views. The trail is rerouted slightly at the beginning (which is well marked) so we ended up doing almost exactly 4 miles to the summit with elevation gain of just below 2000ft for the out and back. This should be changed on the trail info. 3 or maybe 4 steeper parts during the hike but relatively tame. A few stream crossings the pooch was able to drink from.

Good hike, 2nd half of ascent is a little tough, but the falls make it all worth it

Fun trail with great views. The trail starts asa meadow, with lots of flowers and pollinators to see. The view from the overlook is pretty amazing!

Nice hike! Not too strenuous, and with a great view at the end. Falls are better if it recently rained, but there would be more mud on the way there.

I found this trail to be difficult with the footing, stepping on and in between pointy rocks and numerous exposed tree roots for 85 percent of the journey, but I could have been having an off day for hiking too. The pond is definitely worth visiting. Seemed like a very remote place, with lots of AT/LT hikers passing through this time of year. It is very picturesque with dozens.of mini water cascades flowing among moss covered rocks. I also found lions mane (mushroom) here which was a pleasant surprise.

The falls at the end is such a beautiful treat. We did encounter a black bear along the trail but quietly went our separate ways. Gorgeous hike!

Awesome hike. Steep climb up to Baker Peak but a good challenge with a beautiful view to finish.

This hike is peak Vermont, leaves are just starting to fall, moss and firs galore. Trail is gradually uphill most of the way with some steeper inclines here and there. Some new trail has been cut in in places and it’s all very well maintained throughout, shout out to the trail volunteers and GMC!

FYI the overlook with the great views everyone here is mentioning seems to be at
42.9134, -73.1555
Not completely sure tho because I turned around after these views lol.

Great hike, took us 2 hours and 15 min for a round trip. Bring some food/drink for a nice little picnic when you get there. The waterfall is really high, you also can climb a little up closer to the top and touch the water. Very rewarding view after a good hike with quite steep and steady incline!

Great short day hike. A bit rocky and would recommend hiking shoes/boots. Round trip took us about 3 hrs. Falls were beautiful. Took a lot of nice pics

Good hike, about 3 miles, most of the way in is uphill over rocky terrain but the falls are really cool and its worth the hike. Bring water and a snack to eat while you sit and enjoy the falls. Wear good hiking shoes.

Great hike- wear hiking boots!

This actually is getting four instead of five yesterday because of the enormous amounts of mud. It took us almost 5 hours up the Peru trail because of having to cut around to avoid large swaths of the stuff, 6 inches deep in some spots. I’m only complaining because at one point while trying to jump from rock to rock, I fell....and ended up looking like Big Foot. The trail and wonderful 360 degree view at the top made it all worth it! Great, relatively easy...and I’m a whiner.

Awesome hike. Took 1:15 to hike in, and an hour to hike out. Plus whatever time you spend at the falls. Waterfall is gorgeous. We went right after a good rain, so it was running really well. Go early, or on a weekday if possible... seems like it’s a really popular spot. Moderate rating appropriate. Incline towards falls went on for a while... not just a “walk in the woods”. All four members of my family say “five stars!!!!”

Great hike.

Nice trail, a little heavily traveled, nice water views with waterfalls, good for kids and families.

Clean, well maintained trail! No so much a hike for views as most of the trail is in the woods. Better suited for a trail run. You can easily walk to the lake off trail or at picnic areas. Lowell cemetary on the route.

The park and lake are beautiful! Awesome views and great for paddling and fishing!

This is a good hike if you’re in decent shape and don’t mind hiking uphill for 2.5 hours. There were only two spots were it really leveled off, other than that it really was uphill in varying degrees. The views are great and totally worth it. I hiked to the White Rock overlook that others have mentioned, a good stopping point. Fyi on the map, it’s about a 20 minute hike after the sharp bend on the map trail. It took me an hour and half to get back down.
I would highly recommend hiking poles for stability. The trail is narrow at some points, packed earth, and there’s plenty of stepping over and around rocks. I wore hiking pants because there’s a fair amount of brush to get through. Also, there’s a fair amount of bugs, a hat and bug spray were a good idea.

We jogged this trail which had many stream crossings and gently meanders up to Bromley Skiway. It rained hard the night before so the trail was muddy but not terrible. We met some AT hikers at the top (there’s a small lodge) and checked out the surrounding mountain ranges that weren’t blocked by the clouds. It’s 6 miles round trip (out and back) and it took us almost 2 hours jogging most of the way with about 20 minutes spent at the top. It you’re in the area and are looking for a good hike that won’t take all day, I’d recommend it!

This trail is definitely worth the trip! Easy start with a relatively flat forest path that quickly turns into a steep climb over rocks and streams. I would recommend wearing water or durable hiking shoes as your feet are likely to get wet crossing some small streams. The waterfall is stunning!

Great trail. Lots of variety although the rock slides could be daunting for some. Fabulous falls! At the end of the access road ( which has some fun potholes) on the way back out of the “park” is a clever sign telling you there is a speed bump! Hard to tell with all the potholes...good for a chuckle.

This was an easy hike - there were only a couple of spots that might be considered steep. It was raining on our hike so the rocks were slippery. The pond looked clear, and we saw a couple of loons.

This trail has been discovered by a lot of dog walkers. Easy and scenic. A lot of diversity.

Great trail, well blazed with a fantastic falls at the end.

I love this trail as it is both part of the AT and Long Trail. It is mostly wooded with nice switchbacks that make the climb more fun than hard. There are a couple bridges and streams along the way and a nice Vista about halfway up which provides a nice view. The last .03 miles is spent walking up a ski slope and in my opinion is the hardest part of the trail. The 360 degree views from the top are phenomenal.

Nice hike for half a day. Last of hike on ski slope. Out house on top. Wear good hiking shoes, will get muddy with streams.
