Arrived ready for a nice fall hike and the trail and parking lot were closed. Bummer! Went to Severance Mountain instead, 10-15 minutes away which was pretty equivalent in distance and difficulty.

Great quick trail fir the youngsters I have done this one twice. On the second trip we spotted a fairly big porcupine near the summit. If you are looking for something to do with the young kids, this is it. Only 2 miles round trip.

Great short hike, views of Loon Lake are lovely

Did it to complete Chester Challenge. Took twice as long because if the weird confusing trail systems and maps randomly tacked to the trees.

Great trail, well marked. The sign at the trailhead said it was a 2 hour hike, but it's not really that long. I did it in an hour and 15 minutes, and that was with spending almost a half hour at the summit

Awesome hike! Some parts were steep but well worth it once at the top! Views from the top were stunning! Bring bug spray! They were brutal! Would love to do it again!

I'm trying to get the Chester Challenge finished and this trail was easy considering my bum knees, but I push through. I did the Eagle and Cougar trails. Nice, peaceful hike.

Perfect for a quick walk! A gorgeous view at the top!

This is a very short trail but has great views! Perfect to do with Stewart Mountain right down the road and some of the other Chester Challenge mountains for a full day of hiking. I brought my dog and they were nice short walks for him.

I recorded the Cougar Hill loop, but I also walked on about 1/2 of the nature trail. Easy hike around the loop, trail is clearly marked. The mosquitoes were out, there is a lot of streams and water. Seems like a trail I'd like to come back to in the winter and try cross country skiing.

Nice short hike of 1.8 miles, views of Loon Lake and southern Adirondack peaks are very nice. This is one of 8 trails that are part of the "Chester Challenge" offered by the town of Chester.

Great easy-moderate hike. There was a little bit of snow/ice on the ground so a light crampon could be useful. This trail is very well marked with yellow signs almost every 20 feet or so. Beware of the private property and stay on the trail! The trail ends with a fantastic view of Loon Lake and Gore mountain in the distance. There is also a nice sign that denotes different peaks that can be seen at the end of the trial. I am a fit 28 year old and it only took me 20 minutes to reach the end.
