5 minute stroll from trailhead to falls. Last 50 yards very steep, good tread required. Aesthetically the nicest walk-in falls I’ve “hiked”. Bingham takes the cake as far as swimming and jumping but, Moss Glenn definitely worth a visit. Also spotted some native brook trout on the way in.

Visiting from PA and this was a GREAT trail! Not too difficult but enough to feel a work out. First view was about a .5 miles in and the vista is another mile or so. important thing to note that I haven't seen in other reviews. PINNACLE DOGS! There are a pair of friendly, lazy, lovely Goldens dubbed Pinnacle Dogs who were just lazing around and live nearby (from what other hikers said). They have cowbells and thick collars on. When I first saw them, I panicked, thinking they were lost or their owners were hurt. NOPE! Other hikers assured me they were fine and have been on the trail for years. So if you see them, don't panic! They belong there lol

Hiked this trail in July. I am in fairly good condition, and this one made me work. But the views at the top are well worth the effort. Was a beautiful Saturday, and although quiet early on, by 11:00, the path became more crowded.

Steep for most of the trail with a few scrambles. Excellent views and definitely worth the intense effort to get to the summit. No views until the top!

Love this hike. Used to do it once a week when we lived in the area. Quick up and down with wonderful rocky open views always worth it. Bring some favors and snacks.

Challenging hike, but totally worth it! Steep. Okay for agile dogs.

Trail gets more challenging as you go, with more steep climbs and rocky areas. The view at the top is well worth it, there a small area at the top to stop and enjoy.

Beautiful trail, had to stop before summit as there were bear sightings of mom and Cubs

Today I hiked Mt Hunger and White Rock via Middlesex trail. What an awesome hike! It took me 4 hours and fifteen minutes with a 30 minute snack break between the two summits. I went up Mt Hunger, very tough last quarter mile, all rock face with not a lot of hand holds, I bear crawled much of it. Beautiful views, great trail maintenance. One of my favorite hikes so far!

Great hike with a little bit of everything. Difficulty really doesn't come in until the last 1/4 mile or so of straight up rock scramble and some pretty big boulders to go over. our two labs did fine but dog families beware, small dogs will have to be carried/get a boost! Loved the little waterfall about half way in, dogs took a nice cold swim before we all got our butts kicked. 360 reviews are worth it! Wind at the top kept bugs away.

Tough and steep at times, but I'm pretty out of shape and I made it to the top in a little over an hour. Very busy trail, tons of off leashed dogs which is cool with me but if you or your kids aren't fond of dogs, don't do this trail.

A popular trail, the type of trail people do for exercise and with their kids and dogs, for the spectacular 360 view at the top. Not that I have anything against that but if you hike for a sense of seclusion in nature, there are better options. In terms of difficulty, it's a a well balanced afternoon hike.
