Nice hike, close to Boston. It was surprisingly buggy for June, but nothing a little bug spray couldn't fix.

nice loop hike with decent views. can add additional miles by following trails to NH state line and beyond

So Fun! Easy but a nice challenge too! Great place to hang out and slow down, enjoy the view!

Pretty crowded even around dinner time on Sunday. BUGGY! Views are decent, lots of gorgeous ferns.

Hiked May 26, lovely wildflowers along the trails-- lady slippers, trillium, yellow blue bead lilies, starflowers - nice view from summit, bit muddy in spring

Great short hike that gives you enough of an elevation gain to consider it your exercise for the day. On the weekends it can get very crowded, but during the weekdays you can enjoy the beautiful view virtually alone. I suggest staying to the left when you encounter the first fork in the trail. The trail marker says to go right for the summit, but they both get you to the same place and I prefer the trail to the left.

Great, short, moderate hike (about 1.5 - 2 hours) that's well marked and easy to follow.

was well marked and had a descent elevation. the summit seemed very spread out and unfortunately view points were too crowded with climbers today. got visited by a hawk which made up for the lack of views.

Did this hike for the first time, had great weather but lots of mudholes just as a heads up for current conditions.

only went to the temple mountain lookout, but a great view and solid trail.

Too many dogs not on their leash. I don’t mind dogs, just not in my space while I’m hiking.

Quick fairly vertical mildly strenuous hike! Very worth it because of the beautiful view at the top. Rocks were somewhat slippery when we went.

Hey views for a 45 minute hike!

April 5, 2018, still icy, bring your spikes! Many thanks to whomever took the time to make the drawing showing the various mountains in the distance and their compass points.

iPhone recorded 5.5 miles. Packed snow covered the trail.

Great early morning hike after 1-2 inches of fresh snow. Not a strenuous hike at all...brought the dogs. Nice view from the top. Will try this again in the spring - would recommend for anyone looking for a short hike (around 2 hours).

Moderate ascent, not too tough, great views at the summit.

pretty easy, nice view at the top

Awesome hike! Beautiful trails and 300 degree view from the top..my 5 year old with a lil motivation and carrying up a few yards here and there was able to get to the summit..will def be hiking here again

Took my two dogs up Midstate and part of Walch and down Watatic. Temps in the high 30’’s which created lots of fog at the summit. Ice on the trail and slush due to rising temps. Wore crampons which helped a lot.

Nice little hike and amazing reward when reaching the summit. Wear spikes and this is an easier climb in the ice than it is in summer when wet and slippery .

Nice surprise. A moderate 1.25 mile hike up to the summit where there was a rocky outlook with a 300 degree view including the north side of Mt. Wachusett.

met up with 11 of my outdoor loving friends to hike this trail on the day after thanksgiving. quick hike with a bit of elevation gain. wonderful views from the top. easy to follow trail & blazes. highly recommended! after your hike, drive 45 min south to stone cow brewery for some delicious beer, sandwiches, homemade ice cream, and a gorgeous barn interior with games and a cozy fire.

Really nice, pretty easy hike. Enough to feel like you accomplished something without being too exhausting. It was great on a very cold, windy day because it is somewhat sheltered. Nice views from the top!

Small mountain with great views.

An easy trail for a quick day trip, definitely should be labeled “easy” rather than moderate. Lots of traffic but rewarded with a great view at the summit! Hiked 10/28/17
