Hiked it this weekend and found it to be a great trail with kids - wide path, not too much climbing and a nice open space with beautiful views at the top. We spent about an hour at the top while the kids played. The only tricky part was accessing the trail. I followed directions provided through the All Trails link and while it brings you to the right place, the trail is not marked. We parked on Bridge Street and walked down Picket Mountain Road (which is marked private) until we found the trail. The other thing to know is to stay left at the fork in the trail, through the gate.

Loved the Sherwood Libby trail!

Up the Jeep Trail down the new Sherwood Libby Trail.Total round trip 21/2 hrs 15 minutes at the top. What a different mountain we have now, a quick jeep trail up and a very nice woods experience down. This trail will become very popular as soon as the word gets out. I plan to do this trail couple more times this year.
Highest praise for the new trail...thanks very enjoyable

#1 most horrible hike ever! You start out by the gate near the water pipe where you can get fresh spring water you then hike and hike forever and then you get to a dead end where there’s absolutely nothing but woods around you. No views just woods. We hiked into the woods a little further because a local gentleman told us the views were breath taking so we figured we hadn’t gone far enough. We ended up on a dirt tote road that lead us to a large field. So we turned around and followed the map showen on this site that is VERY incorrect!!! Don’t waste you time visit other nearby mountains with good reviews. Note to self ALWAYS read reviews before hiking a mountain. This trail is a lost cause. See photos I shared to see how far off the trail leads you. This map is very wrong.

Really beautiful large trail with amazing views at the top. Just stay to the left once you run into a fork in the trail. :) drive all the way to the end of the dirt road to find the trail we just parked off to the side of the road.

Wouldn’t call it easy. Lots of loose rocks and steady climbs though I am admittedly not in top form! Beautiful forests though and a nice partial view at the summit.

Wear hiking boots! This mountain appears to be made up of mostly small- to medium-sized stones and pebbles. Many of them are loose, which makes for difficult footing. Much of the path is like a rocky riverbed without any water. The incline is steady and it's a good workout, but the views at the summit and scenic lookout are fairly limited since the forest is growing up and obscuring it. A few small old cemeteries to see, one disgruntled nearby landowner, and an old fieldstone foundation. Smaller nature trail nearby is a winding 0.7 mile loop that is well-marked but there isn't much to see.

Did this with our 6 year old, nice little hike, not a bad view at the top

Loved the side paths in the heart of the woods. This was a great hike and will definitely be doing it again!

Never ended up on the actual trail, but the logging road hike did get us to a small Peak and some interesting rock walls.
