Planned a West side Alander Mountain trail. For a day after heavy rain, the trail was fine, expectedly, reasonably wet/dry. Bridges, wet fords, trails sharing stream beds. Shortest route to summit, but climbs & mixed up & down on return. If an in & out, one may partly hike S. Taconic for it's view from the summit, it is marked. Otherwise all day it, or overnight. Used trailhead from Mt. Washington State Forest HQ.

Great hike and difficult in numerous places.

I would definitely rank this as intermediate, as there were only a few short sections with a steep incline. The trail was really beautiful, a few waterfalls and tons of streams. A few streams interrupted the path when i went yesterday but nothing too difficult to hike around. I would absolutely recommend this hike.

Very icy but fun!!

good hiking, nice view

Very nice views of the northwest corner of CT.

Trail was very easy to follow. Difficulty didn't start til about 1mi from the summit- views were absolutely breathtaking

Started this hike at Under Mountain Trailhead on Route 41. Took Undermountain trail to the Appalachian Trail and hike to summit of Bear Mt. From there hiked to Round Mt and then over to Mt. Frissel. The weather was amazing and views were spectacular, especially with the foliage. 9.6 miles total.

Amazing views and foliage.

Such a good hike - came across a wolf and a rattlesnake on the hike and deer on the way in. The park rangers at the bottom were super friendly and gave me a map which was nice! Beautiful entrance to the hike and first half mile with wild flowers and a footbridge/brook. Steep ascent in a great way. Lots of rocks, almost feels like a consistent scramble more than a trail. The summit is long, pretty flat, and gorgeous.

This is a great short hike. I would say it is moderate and not hard. The payoff is great, tremendous. Fabulous views from the top well worth the effort. The trail is well marked except for the top where you have a variety of trails that peel of. Nice back country camping spot about a mile into the trail. Wold do this trail again. and again.
