I did an out and back of Dial via the Leach trail. Ice and some snow but nothing too crazy. Trail is in good condition and easy to follow. 10 mile round trip.

Great hike! Trail was mostly easy but it’s the length of it that’s the challenge. Make sure to take Leach Trail up and to go down Elk Pass if you want to do the loop. Elk Pass has a sharp incline towards Nippletop. The beginning parts of Leach trail can be hard to follow with all the leaves in the ground so be sure to check for trail markers every so often.

Perfect day and stunningly beautiful views, especially at Nippletop. Solid hike - had to add several miles on since we parked pretty far. My legs are very sore. Biggest downside was all of the down leaves coming down after bears den - I rolled my ankle a couple times on rocks/roots hidden under and am feeling it now.

3.5 stars. Please note this is only a review for Upper Wolfjaw, albeit from the same eastern approach. I thought the bridges, rivers, and streams were some of the nicest features of this trail. Summit view is great, but the hike over is very long and makes the payoff at the top seems a little less stellar. Small summit area so avoid on crowded weekends if you want solitude at the top. The last mile gets very icy and treacherous because of the elevation and its location on a part of the mountain that rarely sees sunlight. Use caution. Trekking poles are a must, and in the fall I highly recommend crampons for that icy part. When coming back down and hitting the first junction, make sure to turn right towards Lower Wolfjaw, then soon you will see another junction where you will continue to the right towards Wedge Brook Trail. Trail markers switch between yellow and blue a few times. Bad trail erosion, especially in that last mile or so going up. Took me nearly eleven hours to do, including the hour at the summit, but I am slow and extremely careful.
