Always a nice hike although today it was quite muddy. But who can complain about a 70 degree day in February. A little ice but it and the mud was fairly easy to get around.

A good loop and challenging although the trails were very icy so I wasn’t able to make it all the way around and had to turn back. Look forward to going again in the spring.

The steep, short side is the best! Definitely a beautiful Berkshire favorite!

went at 9am, only a few other people, quick hike. Gradual incline. Indian trail runs by the road, which is a luttle distracting, but the peak is great! Definitely recommend stopping at Devil's Pulpit for the best views.

Nice but traffic noise.

Beautiful mountains with captivating views. Though it gets steep at certain points, the trek to Devil’s Pulpit is well worth the adventure!

Hiked this today on a warm fall day! Great foliage

Gorgeous views and a very easy ascent on the Indian Monument Trail to the left after you park. Ran into a few people but they were all very nice. Even met a hiking couple from Colorado. Good news, Atlas (German shepherd) did not go after any chipmunks! ;) Though there were tons! I posted photos. It gets a little tight at the top and Atlas didn't want to go over the rocks, but then we saw that there was a pass around. All in all 5 stars! Would go again in a heartbeat. Oh. Bring your debit card. There's a meter for paying for parking at the lot.

Not super difficult, but I broke a pretty good sweat on the way up on an unseasonably-warm Fall day. The trail follows the road for a bit, so there's a good bit of noise, but eventually it meanders through the woods, climbing steadily until opening up to some pretty great views at the top. The trail was a bit rocky, interspersed with tree roots, but that's to be expected in this area.

Beautiful views at the top with well marked trails. One of my favorite hikes!

We two 70+year-olds really enjoyed this trail. The difficulty was in the rocky terrain and not the elevation, so it was fun but not taxing.
The trailhead is NOT at Fountain Pond Park, as stated in this app. It has its own parking area at 551 Stockbridge Rd. in Great Barrington.

Spectacular views from the exposed granite on the top in 360 degrees. Mostly anyone can do this hike. Good in all seasons.

There are three principal trails at this site which can make a loop or can be done as in and out trails. HIckey trail is steeper and takes you to Summit Trail which goes to the summit with lovely views and takes you down by a gentler grade trail. Moderate level, and the trail is in good condition. The summit is a bit rocky and "ledge-y" in spots.

Easy hike, great view! Very well marked trails and very easy to find.

Good hike with a nice view at the top.

Good times!

Great hike! Trail is very well maintained - some light rock scrambling is required near the peak. If you want a steeper ascent start north of the parking lot, more gradual go south.

Favorite trail in the Berkshires! I always do it at least once a year. Love the views and watching the birds circle below me on top of Devil's Pulpit.
