I really enjoyed this hike. We did this hike right after we hiked Meade and Beckman Mountains. The start of the trail was icy but doable with just hiking boots without spikes. Where the trails begins to get steep was conveniently dry and very easy to navigate. You get a stunning view of distant peaks at the top.

Short 3 mile round trip. Little steep in few places Probably more crowded then usual due to corona virus. Tower technically closed but I think some people may have climbed steps when no one was around. As long as not touching handrails don’t see how it makes any difference

I Great hike on 3/22/20. 3 year old made it no problem. Great view at the top. **Please keep your dogs leashed. A family had 2 labs who were not and they allowed them to go-ahead out of sight. Our dogs were leased but a dog fight did still happen....

great trail- spikes definitely recommended but doable without them! had my dog with us and there were others on the trail, not easy for a dog with the ice but doable. my watch recorded the hike at 4.8 miles not 3.9! some steep parts but lots of flat too! stunning views from the top!

Tower cab is closed. Little bit of snow, ice, and mud along trail. Much of trail is washed out with thick leaves. Beautiful day for it tho.

Great trail. Hard with all the snow and ice. Views are nice from the fire tower but if you don’t climb up then it’s not worth it. Definitely moderate with some breaks In between. Pack water!

Great bang for your buck easy hike! View to Champlain Valley and high peaks are amazing! If hiking in winter, .9 mile of road closed before trailhead!

i did this trail in 30 minutes including breaks, pictures & natures calls. LOL. not! i never hurry a trail. there is always something to see and a friendly face to chat with. this trail didn't disappoint. the trail easy to follow, nice on the eyes. view from the tower great but the best thing about the trail as it should always on any trail is the people. i meet a few really great people here and even walk back to the parking lot with some. thats the best thing about hiking is sharing a moment or two with complete strangers.

Great views at the top, especially if you climb the viewing tower. There was some fresh snow that made path easy to walk on with just hiking boots. Saw some groups with snow shoes, and some folks had their dogs. Overall great hike. Not very steep throughout.

Spikes are recommended. Sign at top is down.

Beautiful day for this trail, blue skies and snow, not too cold or windy. Took me an hour and 45 min round trip breaks included. Micro spikes the whole way up, snow shoes not needed. Very top of the fire tower was closed.

If you're looking for your first winter hike,this is it . With or without snowshoes unless you plan on looping.

Awesome hike, went with me and my two dogs. I used snowshoes, but the trail was super packed down and I saw a lot of people just using spikes so I switched to spikes on the way down. Steady incline to the top where there's a fire tower. We were keeping a pretty quick pace and made it up in an hour, and down in 45 minutes.

02/22/2020 14 degrees at trailhead at 9 am; warmed to 40 in hours. Microspikes all the way. Followed yellow trail to the blue trail which leads to fire tower. Tower cabin closed for winter however stairs, while snow and ice covered, lead to an outstanding and windy view.

What a fun hike today (2/16/20) in snowshoes. We were only the third car in the lot around 10am. The trail starts out meandering through the woods, mostly flat. I love starting trails that way - lets my legs loosen up before I have to start climbing. Half a mile in is where the climbing begins here. A few people in spikes but most others in snowshoes. No wind at all at the summit, which offers very limited views unless you climb the tower. Well, there may be great winter views but we were pretty socked in. From the top of the very tall, very icy tower, I could see the Santanoni Range but Marcy was behind clouds. I really loved the trail and can't wait to go back in warm weather to see what it looks like when everything is green.

Over a foot of fresh snow from two days ago. Snow shoes all the day. Not a difficult hike. Glad the trail was broken as trail markers are few and far between. The parking lot was nicely plowed so that was a plus. No views from fire tower because clouds.

Very easy XC skiing. Great snow. Snowshoers are respectful and stay in their lane so the ski tracks are in tact. Only went about 1.5 miles in, just checking things out today.

01/23/2020 the trail was packed snow, approx 8-10 inch packed. Although we carried snow shoes, they were not necessary and micro spikes were fine. The views at the top were spectacular. We enjoyed a clear day, with no wind. The tower at the summit is open and allows great 360 degree views.
