This trail is unmarked for nearly the entirety of the hike. I found myself going off trail on multiple occasions. If you’re going to hike this trail, make sure you have a map.

Fantastic trail conditions, cross the river once, it was easy. Gradual climb. There was two spots that were a little muddy still able to cross over them. Cascades were beautiful and way bigger than expected!

This trail is NOT easy and I hike all of the time. Some dangerous spots too and the trail is narrow single file. Although the cascades were pretty at the top, I personally would not repeat this hike again.

Great little adventure! Lots of muddy areas so bring waterproof shoes and if you have a dog bring a towel... that was our main mistake. Still some ice at the top so I’d recommend bringing a pole or spikes. But I think we could have survived without if we had forgotten them. There is a river crossing, which is high right now. Worth it! Still open during the pandemic.

Great hike up Noon Peak today, stopped at the outlook shortly after Noon Peak, nice view through the trees. The last quarter mile before Noon Peak is steep and still quite icy. Beautiful walk through a moss covered forest before that. The crossing at Drake’s Brook in the beginning is rushing, so I had to bushwack around cause I had my dog and she doesn’t do rivers. This crossing can be avoided by crossing Drakes Brook at the bridge on Rt. 49, then following a pretty obvious side trail until it reconnects with the Sandwhich Mt. Trail just on the other side of the Brook

Great trail! beautiful views. icy and slushy, needed the spikes the second half

The large part of the cascade is still frozen but the lower stair cascade is flowing free. Trail is slushy but good conditions.

Hard to see trail in winter. Probably could find it motivated but we were looking for a short hike after doing tecusmeh right before.

There was a lot of snow on this trail (obviously) we did arrive at the falls and realize they were all frozen over. I do enjoy a good walk in the woods either way:)

Beautifully kept trail during winter. Would recommend snowshoes. Took the sandwich mtn trail up, taking a lunch break at jennings before heading over to sandwich. Then took the drakes brook trail down for less steep descent. Would rate the sandwich mtn trail as difficult during winter as there are some pretty steep sections that could be tough without traction. Micro spikes or crampons will do fine for these. Great forest setting, some moose prints near the sandwich peak

Hiked 1/5/20 Beautiful trail, but not well marked. We were the first to hike the trail after it had snowed so we were forced to keep checking AllTrails to make sure we were still on path. Last quarter mile was very steep and had deep powder. Couldn’t get enough traction in snow shoes, had to turn around.
