Hiked this several times last year, again in early May (still lots of snow still!) and am going today.

However, I don’t take this trail the whole way. About a mile in, Bob Kemp Trails breaks off to the left and Middlesex bears right - there is a sign. I take Bob Kemp as to detour to White Rock which has great 270 degree views itself with a lot of exposed, flat terrain. From there, I ride the ridge line over to the Mt. Hunger summit - it is less than mile and there are signs to direct you. One steep push right at this end but very doable. The rest has some steeper sections but flattens out in between. I would say moderate is a very accurate rating. Extremely worthwhile for near 360 views from the top of Hunger
