    Shelley Huneven reviewed Smarts Mountain Peak Trail

    over 2 years ago

    This is a RUGGED trail. The first section (going up the Smarts ranger trail) is gradual and easy, and then you get to a small building (called the "garage") on the map. If you are not in great shape or not up for a long and arduous hike, stop here! The remainder of the trail is steep, rocky and slick. I would definitely recommend hiking polls and microspikes (if hiking in the spring). We tried once before to hike in the spring and ended up having to turn around because it becomes glare ice at the top. Once you finally reach the top you'll be slightly disappointed to see that there are no spectacular views, but a trip up the fire tower will fix that. There's also a nice tent site to sit and relax at to catch your breath. We met some hikers at the top who said they came up the AT instead of the ranger trail because it has nicer views. So, we took the AT down and they were so right! It was much more up and down and gradual for the first large chunk of the way down though, which through us off a bit. But, there are awesome rock face views and a nicer trail. Eventually it drops right off and brings you back to the parking lot. Beware: if you have a dog with you, know that there are barely any places for them to drink on the AT, which differs from the ranger trail which has a lot of creeks for them to drink from. All in all it was a 4.5 hour hike and we were beat by the time we came down. We'd definitely do it again, but only via the AT next time. Happy hiking!

    Really nice trail that would be awesome for waking, and probably awesome for mountain biking if you were actually in good shape and knew what you were doing :-) it was definitely a tough ride up for me, but a really great workout. Made it 5.1 miles up and it looked like it turned into a mostly snowy path, so we turned around there. There were a few snowy sections, but nothing unmanageable.

    Awesome hike! Great mixture of incline, decline and flat trail, shaded and out in the sun, gorgeous views right from the start. We meandered and took pictures and it only took us 2 1/2 hours. Good little workout without being crazy strenuous. Definitely give it a try!
