A great day for a hike up Mt. Wesley with the boys. They did great, it’s a much more technical hike then Mt. Horne which we did in the fall. Great views of Cameron Lake and Arrowsmith/Cokely.

Definitely hard and not moderate. Some fairly steep sections and some with ropes to help you along. Watch for the false summit. you may think you made it but keep going.

Nice trail but quite steep. I would rather rate this trail as hard. Hiking poles are recommended.

This trail is incorrectly categorized as Moderate. It is extremely steep grade with higher elevation than Grouse Grind but without the stairs built into the trail. So what you get is loose dirt with a few rocks and roots to grip. This results in a very unstable, steep trail with steep cliffs and ravines below you. Quarry Rock trail is also categorized as Moderate and this is WAY harder, steeper and more dangerous especially if you are unprepared and are lacking the correct gear.
